Instructions :

As your kitchen transforms into a haven of sweet aromas, preheat the oven to a golden 425°F. Picture the dance of cinnamon and raw sugar over unrolled pie crusts, each delicate round becoming a canvas for the Mini Cannoli Cups.

With a gentle roll of the rolling pin, the sugar and cinnamon become one with the dough. The pastry rounds, adorned with this sweet embrace, find their place in the embrace of mini muffin cups, creating a symphony of textures and flavors.

As the cups bake, the kitchen becomes a stage for golden perfection. After a mere 10 minutes, the cannoli cups emerge, golden brown and ready to cradle the magic within.

While the cups cool, prepare the filling – a creamy blend of whole-milk ricotta, powdered sugar, citrusy zest, and the warmth of vanilla extract. This heavenly mixture finds its place in a zip-top bag, ready to transform into swirls of delight.

Just before the grand unveiling, pipe the filling into the cooled pastry cups, each one becoming a vessel of sweet ecstasy. Top them with miniature chocolate chips or pistachios, and let a snowfall of powdered sugar complete the masterpiece.

Tips and Notes:

For an extra touch of decadence, dip the top edges of the cups into melted chocolate before filling.
Ensure the cups are completely cooled before filling to maintain their delightful crispness.
Store any remaining pastry cups at room temperature and keep the filling in the refrigerator until serving.

Substitutions and Variations:

Experiment with flavored ricotta, such as chocolate or citrus-infused, for a unique twist.
Try different nuts like almonds or hazelnuts for a personalized garnish.

Notes:

Fill the cups just before serving to maintain their delightful crunchiness.

Indulge in the charm of Italy with these Mini Cannoli Cups – a delightful fusion of textures and flavors that captures the essence of classic Italian sweets. Serve them at your next gathering and transport your guests to a sun-kissed Sicilian café.
