Total Time: 10 mins

INGREDIENTS:

FOR THE FILLING: 

1 (16-oz.) container ricotta 

1/2 cup of mascarpone cheese

1/2 cup of powdered sugar, divided 

1 cup of heavy cream 

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

1 tsp. orange zest

1/4 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips, for garnish 

FOR THE SHELLS: 

2 cups of all-purpose flour, plus more for surface

1/4 cup of granulated sugar

1 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

4 tbsp. cold butter, cut into cubes

6 tbsp. white wine

1 large egg

1 egg white, for brushing

Vegetable oil, for frying 

DIRECTIONS MAKE FILLING:

  1.  Drain ricotta by placing it a fine mesh strainer set over a large bowl. Let drain in refrigerator for at least an hour and up to overnight. 

  2. In a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat heavy cream and 1/4 cup powdered sugar until stiff peaks form. 

  3. In another large bowl, combine ricotta, mascarpone, remaining 1/4 cup powdered sugar, vanilla, orange zest, and salt. Fold in whipped cream. Refrigerate until ready to fill cannoli, at least 1 hour.

MAKE SHELLS:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Cut butter into flour mixture with your hands or pastry cutter until pea-sized. Add wine and egg and mix until a dough forms. Knead a few times in bowl to help dough come together. Pat into a flat circle, then wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to overnight. 

  2. On a lightly floured surface, divide dough in half. Roll one half out to ⅛” thick. Use a 4” circle cookie cutter to cut out dough. Repeat with remaining dough. Re-roll scraps to cut a few extra circles. 

  3. Wrap dough around cannoli molds and brush egg whites where the dough will meet to seal together. 

FOR FRYING:

  1. In a large pot over medium heat, heat about 2" of oil to 360°. Working in batches, add cannoli molds to oil and fry, turning occasionally, until golden, about 4 minutes. Remove from oil and place on a paper towel-lined plate. Let cool slightly. 

  2. When cool enough to handle or using a kitchen towel to hold, gently remove twist shells off of molds. 

  3. Place filling in a pastry bag fitted with an open star tip. Pipe filling into shells, then dip ends in mini chocolate chips. 

FOR AIR FRYER:

  1. Working in batches, place molds in basket of air fryer and cook at 350° for 12 minutes, or until golden. 

  2. When cool enough to handle or using a kitchen towel to hold, gently remove twist shells off of molds. 

  3. Place filling in a pastry bag fitted with an open star tip. Pipe filling into shells, then dip ends in mini chocolate chips.
