Ingredients

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
1 pinch salt
*
½ teaspoon baking powder
2 large eggs
4 teaspoons sugar
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup marsala wine
or desert wine
*
1 x olive oil
*
½ pound ricotta cheese
4 teaspoons orange flower water
*
½ cup candied orange peel
citron
*
1 ounce unsweetened chocolate
crushed
1 x powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Combine flour, salt, baking powder, 1 egg, sugar, and butter.

  2. Gradually add enough wine to make a firm dough. Knead until smooth and elastic.

Roll into very thin sheets; cut into 12 squares.

  1. Place metal cannoli tubes diagonally onto each square so tube divides each square into 2 triangles.

Lay points of triangles over tubes so they meet in middle.

Separate remaining egg and use a little of the egg white to moisten overlap.

Press gently to seal.

  1. Heat 3 to 4 inches deep olive oil in deep pan. Fry cannoli until golden brown, drain well on paper towels, and cool.

Remove metal tubes.

  1. Combine remaining part of egg with ricottta cheese, orange flower water, candied orange and chocolate and blend well.

Fill cannoli with cheese mixture.

Sprinkle with confectioner's sugar.
