  • 4

    cups whole milk ricotta cheese

  • 1 1/2

    cups powdered sugar

  • 1

    tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1/3

    cup finely chopped maraschino cherry

  • 1/4

    cup semisweet mini chocolate chips

  • 1

    cup heavy whipping cream, optional

    oz ricotta cheese

  • 8

    oz cream cheese

  • 1

    cup sugar

  • 1

    cup heavy cream, whipped

  • 2

    tsp vanilla

  • 1 1/2

    tsp zest of lemon and orange

Directions

Recipe #1: For filling, drain ricotta cheese over cheesecloth if ricotta is watery. Combine ricotta cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until combined. Squeeze Maraschino cherries with paper towels to remove all liquid. (If you don't squeeze them good, you will have a pink water filling!). Stir in cherries and chocolate chips into the ricotta mixture, being careful not to over mix. For a lighter filling, you may whip 1 cup of heavy whipping cream to form stiff peaks, and fold into filling mixture at this step. Chill filling for about 30 minutes before piping into cooled cannoli shells. You may garnish the cannoli by sprinkling powdered sugar on top. Whipped cream, a cherry, and shaved chocolate can also be used to garnish the top. Keep refrigerated until time of serving. Pipe into shells Recipe #2 Cream sugar with cream cheese, add vanilla and zest of lemon and orange, blend well. Add ricotta and mix well. Fold in whipped cream and refrigerate 4 hours Pipe into shells
