Pumpkin meets my favourite Italian dessert on this Pumpkin Cannoli Dip
The place to seek out the most effective cheesesteaks in Philadelphia isn’t the one meals matter which we locals have a powerful opinion about (for the report, it’s Jim’s Steaks for me.)
In the event you’re from South Philly or reside close to by and have any Italian blood in your loved ones lineage, you in all probability have a choice on the place to get cannoli – the fried dough pastry crammed with sweetened ricotta.
In our household, it’s Isgro Pastries (or Potito’s Bakery for a detailed second.) For our wedding ceremony reception, we had mini cannoli from Isgro’s introduced in and I could or could not have gone on a “eat cannoli each single day” binge throughout our honeymoon in Sicily.
True be instructed, my favourite a part of the cannoli is the tremendous clean and candy ricotta filling. I believed again to a cannoli dessert dip that my cousin dropped at my child bathe years in the past. It was served with damaged items of cannoli shell – an excellent means for the bakery to make use of up their shell mishaps.
I didn’t even wish to try and recreate the deep fried shells so I pieced collectively a recipe for baked cannoli shells. And on this recipe, the shells don’t need to be fashioned in any respect — as a result of actually, what’s the purpose if you happen to’re simply going to interrupt them up?
On the final minute, I added pumpkin to the ricotta stuffing for colour, vitamin and seasonality (since my pumpkin ban is over – I refused to make use of it earlier than the official begin of fall this yr. Pumpkin pancakes in August?? Simply no.)
So, whereas the ultimate end result in all probability received’t put Isgro’s out of enterprise, I now have a brand new fall/Halloween occasion dip within the recipe rotation.
