The November 2009 Daring Bakers Challenge was chosen and hosted by Lisa Michele of Parsley, Sage, Desserts and Line Drives
. She chose the Italian Pastry, Cannolo (Cannoli is plural), using the cookbooks Lidia’s Italian-American Kitchen by Lidia Matticchio Bastianich and The Sopranos Family Cookbook by Allen Rucker; recipes by Michelle Scicolone, as ingredient/direction guides. She added her own modifications/changes, so the recipe is not 100% verbatim from either book.
This month The Daring Bakers made cannoli--those luscious Italian pastries typically filled with sweetened ricotta cheese. My version doesn't deviate too much from the original recipe. I used ricotta and slightly sweet strawberry puree for the filling, and just a little powdered sugar on top. They were outstanding!
Please see some of the other cannoli creations at The Daring Kitchen
