In Response to Re: Does anyone have a recipe for an Italian Pastry that is filled with Ricotta, candied fruit, chocolate flavored and deep fried? : HI Nikki,I have two recipes that I use one with vinegar which I use for savory dishes and one with lemon juice that I use for deserts.I made chocolate cinnamon pizzelles and filled them with the ricotta and it was so good.I wanted to make pizzelles now but my sweet little puppy chewed the cord and I haven't had a chance to take it and get it repaired.I have cannoli forms and I was messing around with the pizzelle maker and thought I would make them a little fancy and rolled them on the cannoli forms when they came off the pizzelle maker and then sprinkle powder sugar on them they were good,then I filled some and those were even better.I'll try to post later if nothing is going on I have to leave and pick up Hubby and do a little grocery shopping.I'll post here.

I made my cannoli shells twice. They are a pain in the tusch to make!! I found a market that makes the shells and sells them empty so I take the short cut and buy a few. Believe it or not I am the only one that likes them so I am better off not making my own shells any way. And I never buy pre filled ones, they are often soggy and just don't taste good. When we go out to a restaurant that has them on the menu I always ask if they are already filled or if they fill them to order. And I dislike citron in the filling, chocolate is ok.
When you get around to it I would love the ricotta recipe, is there a real difference in the two other than the acid used?
My sister loves pizelles but I never did like them much. I guess she likes them because of the anise flavor and that is why I don't like them.
Have a Merry Christmas.
By the way I had a cat that chewed electrical cords like crazy. Had to repair my vacuum cleaner cord 3 times, several telephone cords. Amazing that cat lived as long as he did.
