Pumpkin meets my favourite Italian dessert on this Pumpkin Cannoli Dip 


The place to seek out the most productive cheesesteaks in Philadelphia isn’t the one meals subject which we locals have a powerful opinion about (for the report, it’s Jim’s Steaks for me.)

Should you’re from South Philly or reside close to by means of and feature any Italian blood to your circle of relatives lineage, if in case you have a desire on the place to get cannoli – the fried dough pastry full of sweetened ricotta.

In our circle of relatives, it’s Isgro Pastries (or Potito’s Bakery for a detailed 2d.) For our wedding ceremony reception, we had mini cannoli from Isgro’s introduced in and I would possibly or would possibly not have long gone on a “devour cannoli each and every unmarried day” binge all the way through our honeymoon in Sicily.

True be informed, my favourite a part of the cannoli is the tremendous clean and candy ricotta filling. I assumed again to a cannoli dessert dip that my cousin dropped at my child bathe years in the past. It was once 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 to recreate the deep fried shells so I pieced in combination a recipe for baked cannoli shells. And on this recipe, the shells don’t should be shaped in any respect — as a result of actually, what’s the purpose in the event you’re simply going to damage them up?

On the remaining 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 ahead of the reputable get started of fall this yr. Pumpkin pancakes in August?? Simply no.)

So, whilst the general outcome almost definitely received’t put Isgro’s into bankruptcy, I now have a brand new fall/Halloween birthday celebration dip within the recipe rotation.
