- optional ingredients you can also add:
- 2 cups of whole milk Ricotta (drain with a strainer if it has excess liquid.)
- 3/4 cups powdered sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips (can also use mini chocolate chips.)
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 tbs lemon zest
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Drain your ricotta, if necessary, and place it in a medium sized bowl. Using a whisk, stir until a majority of the clumps have become smooth.
Sift in the powdered sugar and continue to make smooth.
In a mixer, beat your heavy cream until it begins to become stiff and form peaks.
Using a spatula, gently fold this cream into your mixture. As well as the vanilla, chocolate chips, and any other optional ingredients you want to try.
Set this mixture in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes prior to filling your cannoli shells.
