Wonton Cannoli

Winter is officially here. It has been really cold since last friday, and snowing since last night. Slowly but sure.

I adore snow, yes. But the cold, not really.

Not easy being a tropical girl and live in the viking land.

Cannoli

Well, I know there’s no relation between cannoli and winter. Of course. But I just want to talk a bit.

Anyway, I told you in the post before that I really like watching food related show. This time Cake Boss inspired me. Everytime they have “cannoli scene” it always succeed on making me drooling. I really really want to try them. Until one day, usually every summer, we have a food festival here in Gothenburg. They sell food from so many countries. Italy was there. And I knew what I was looking for when I stop by their stall.Β Luckily they have some cannoli. And I immediately asked my husband to buy some for me.

When I got home and ready to try them, I was like… “hmm.. it’s ok, it’s nice but nothing really special about this sweet”. So then after that I started to think less about cannoli. Don’t get me wrong though, it was nice, but I’m just not a big fan of sweets. I like making them, but not eating them. And a bit difficult for me to find sweets that I really really like.

Until I saw this post in bakersroyale. A shortcut for the cannoli shells? Me like.

I also did some changes on the filling (I apologize if you’re Italian).

I like to make lots of the wonton cookies, it can keep for up to 2 weeks in air tight jar.

Ingredients:

  • wonton sheets
  • melted butter
  • 200g cream cheese
  • 200ml cream
  • 2 tbsp (around 50g) icing sugar
  • vanilla
  • crushed almonds
  • chocolate sprinkles
  • melted chocolate for decoration

 

How to:

  1. Take 1 wonton sheet, using a round cookie cutter, cut each wonton sheets into round sheet.
  2. Brush the edge (one side) with a little bit melted butter
  3. Wrap wonton around the cannoli form and place on to your baking sheet and bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until nice golden brown at 170Β° C.
  4. Remove from the oven and, take out the cannoli forms and let them cool down on a baking rack.
  5. For the filling, whisk the cream until hard peak (be careful not to over whisked it), set aside.
  6. In a separate bowl, whisk cream cheese, sugar and vanilla until nice and smooth.
  7. Mix cream cheese and whipped cream together using spatula. Lastly add the chocolate sprinkles.
  8. Place the cream into a piping bag. And fill the wonton cookies with the cream. Add melted chocolate on top of the cannoli and sprinkle some crushed almonds.

 

note: Really sorry that I don’t have proper measurement for the recipe this time, because I really just put things in, without measuring them (except fro cream and cream cheese). Also, I made my own cannoli forms, using aluminium foil. Just take a little bit of aluminium foil then roll it.Β
