  • About

These elegant pastry tubes of caramelized, baked puff pastry are similar to Cannoli alla Siciliana. Since they are not fried, they are a bit less rich and are more appropriately filled with pastry cream, but use ricotta filling if you prefer it.

To bake the cannoncini you need 12 metal tubes, as for cannoli. See Sources of Equipment and Ingredients.
