Pumpkin meets my favourite Italian dessert on this Pumpkin Cannoli Dip 


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

In case you’re from South Philly or dwell close to by and have any Italian blood in your loved ones lineage, you in all probability have a desire on the place to get cannoli – the fried dough pastry crammed with sweetened ricotta.

In our household, it’s Isgro Pastries (or Potito’s Bakery for an in depth second.) For our marriage ceremony reception, we had mini cannoli from Isgro’s introduced in and I could or might not have gone on a “eat cannoli each single day” binge throughout our honeymoon in Sicily.

True be advised, my favourite a part of the cannoli is the tremendous easy and candy ricotta filling. I believed again to a cannoli dessert dip that my cousin delivered to my child bathe years in the past. It was served with damaged items of cannoli shell – an excellent approach 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 collectively a recipe for baked cannoli shells. And on this recipe, the shells don’t must be fashioned in any respect — as a result of actually, what’s the purpose when you’re simply going to interrupt them up?

On the final minute, I added pumpkin to the ricotta stuffing for coloration, diet and seasonality (since my pumpkin ban is over – I refused to make use of it earlier than the official begin of fall this yr. Pumpkin pancakes in August?? Simply no.)

So, whereas the ultimate end result in all probability gained’t put Isgro’s out of enterprise, I now have a brand new fall/Halloween get together dip within the recipe rotation.
