Cannolis are delicious. Cream Puffs are delicious. Put the two together and you end up with something unbelievably delicious. There are many areas of the world, where you cannot get a cannoli, but you should be able to make these no matter where you live.
Cannoli Cream Puffs
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1 Tbsp. white sugar
1/2 tsp. salt (reduce to 1/4 tsp.if using salted butter)
1 cup all-purpose flour
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cup whole milk ricotta (I wouldn’t try the low-fat here)
1 1/4 cup mascarpone cheese
1/2 cup icing (confectioners) sugar (or a bit more or less, depending on how sweet you like it)
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. vanilla
(Variations: replace cinnamon with grated orange or lemon zest or sprinkle chopped chocolate or mini chocolate chips over filling. A drizzle of melted chocolate over the top is also a nice variation)
