Italian Cannoli Parfait Recipe


Almost everybody loves that wonderful Italian dessert, cannoli. However, itís not one regularly made at home because it is fairly difficult and time-consuming. The dessert consists of a piece of dough rolled out thin, wrapped around a metal tube, and deep fried; the shells are then stuffed with a cream filling usually made from ricotta. The dessert originated in Sicily, and has become popular not only all over Italy, but everywhere in the world. The following Italian Cannoli Parfaits capture the flavors of traditional cannoli, but are much less work. Crushed amaretti are used between layers to give the dessert some crunch and as a stand-in for the shells.
ĒĒ
If parfait glasses arenít available, or if planning to serve the dessert as part of a buffet, Italian Cannoli Parfaits can be layered in a pretty glass trifle bowl or cut crystal bowl. The desserts wonít be individual, but they will be delicious, just the same. Another time, add some chopped, well-drained maraschino cherries and almond extract to the filling.

12 Servings

2 cups heavy whipping cream
2 cups part-skim ricotta cheese
1 8 oz. package Neufchatel cheese, or cream cheese
finely grated rind of 2 oranges
1 cup mini chocolate chips

5 ounces amaretti cookies, coarsely crushed
12 orange slices, for garnish
  1. Whip the cream to stiff peaks; transfer to a separate bowl.

  2. In the same bowl, whip the ricotta and neufchatel cheeses until light; mix in the orange rind.


  3. Layer 1/4 cup of the mixture in the bottom of 12 parfait glasses; sprinkle with a tablespoon of the crushed amaretti cookies.

  4. Top with more of the ricotta mixture, more crumbs, and a little of the ricotta mixture.

  5. Cover and refrigerate.

  6. To serve, garnish with an orange slice.
