SHELLS - about 12 or 15 shells

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sweet Marsala wine
2 beaten egg whites

Into a bowl sift together the flour, sugar, and salt.

With your fingers, work the wine gradually into the dry ingredients to form a stiff dough.

Form into a ball, wrap in plastic and let rest at room temperature for 1 hour.

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8-inch thickness.

With a cutter, cut out rounds 5-inches in diameter.

In batches, as necessary, wrap each round onto a cannoli mold, sealing the edges with egg white.

Fry the cannoli in batches until just golden brown and crisp, about 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels, let cool, then gently slip the molds from the cannolis.

THE FILLING

1 pound riccota - **best results , drain it overnight with cheesecloth or a strainer with small small holes**
Confectioner's sugar

Place ricotta in a large bowl, add sugar a bit at a time until you get your desired thickeness. I can not give you measurement for the sugar because each batch of riccota can be thin or thick to begin with.
Start with 1/2 cup of confectioner's sugar and work from there.

You can add in 1/4 cup finely chopped citron (candied fruit ) to the ricotta mixture or dip each end of the filled cannoli in chopped pistasio's or mini chocolate chips.

Let me know how they turn out !!

Snoopy,
I'm looking for both. I have the stainless steel tubes but the recipe that came with them seems, I don't know, wrong somehow.

You need the recipe for the shells and the filling? or just the filling?
