Canolli Cream Puffs

Pastry 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
Cannoli Filling:
  • 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)

Garnish:
  • Icing (confectioners) sugar
