  1. In a medium bowl, stir together the eggs, sugar, melted butter and oil. Stir in the flour, baking soda and cinnamon. Then add the cold water and vinegar. Mix well until smooth.
  2. Preheat the pizzelle iron. Drop the cannoli batter 1 tablespoon at a time onto the iron, close the lid and bake for 1 to 2 minutes. Carefully remove cookies and roll on the cooking cylinders while they are hot. Allow them to cool and remove from the cylinder. Fill when all of the shells have been baked and cooled.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix together the ricotta cheese, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Fold in the chocolate chips and cherries (if desired). Use a pastry bag to pipe the filling into the shells.

My family love store cannoli's and when I found this recipe I had to try them. The fact that these are not fried, I wasn't sure if we would like them. I made the shell's with the pizzelle iron ...

this receipe really flopped! the shells came out nie, if you have tough fingertips but the filling was way too liquidy. an overall disappointment!

Didn't wait to buy the extra equipment. We ate the filling and remembered the great taste of the special Christmas Canolli we had as kids.

You have to drain the ricotta cheese first which this recipe neglects to mention so the filling runs all over the place. Secondly there is not enough filling to fill 24 cannolis. If you are luck...

The taste of the filling was great, but it was very runny and had sugary feel to it. I didn't see the previous posts about draining ricotta or using powdered sugar. Perhaps that would help. W...

The filling was a little more runny than i like but overall it was homemade and the taste was wonderful. Will definatley make again
