Holy cannoli! Have I got a fun treat for you!
These simple and fun cookies will remind you of a beloved Italian treat. But, they are so much faster and easier to make! Plus, no frying required.
A traditional cannoli features a hard pastry shell filled with sweetened ricotta. These cookies are made with a hint of citrus, cinnamon, and nutmeg. They also feature...RICOTTA. This helps to create a lighter and fluffier cookie, almost cake-like.
And, these gluten free cannoli cookies are perfect for any occasion! Sunday brunch. Tuesday night book club. A baby shower. Or even Easter.
I topped with a simple ricotta glaze and a little orange zest. You could also top with an orange glaze, powdered sugar, mini chocolate chips, or chopped pistachios.
For Italian cookie bliss, look no further. I've got you covered!
A cannoli is an Italian sweet treat that hails from Sicily. It is a fried pastry dough tube, filled with sweetened ricotta. The flavor of the ricotta tends to be fairly plain, often with a hint of citrus and cinnamon. The ends are often topped with mini chocolate chips or chopped pistachios. This golden, flaky treat has been around for hundreds of years, so you know they must be good!
Technically, cannoli is singular. I'd like to think it's because, of course, who can eat just one?!? But, I don't think that is the reason. In Italian, cannolo is the singular form. Basically, saying cannolis is the same as saying cakeses.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 5-6 days. Bake and freeze for 1 month. You can also freeze the dough for up to one month.
For a super-soft cookie with all of the cannoli flavors you love- these gluten free cannoli cookies are sure to be a big hit! Huge!
