For the Mini Cannoli Cups

  • Flour for dusting
  • 1 can refrigerated pie crusts
  • 3 Tbs coarse  sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

For the Mini Cannoli Filling

(If you want the cream to be extra thick set it in cheese cloth in a bowl and refrigerate over night)

  • 1 (15oz) container of whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 C. confectioners’ sugar, plus extra for dusting finished cups
  • 2 Tbs sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 C mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (or other toppings such as slivered almonds, cinnamon, dried fruit, chocolate jimmies (sprinkles for you non-new englanders)

Directions for Mini Cannoli Cups

In a large bowl mix together all filling ingredients except for your topping pieces until creamy.
Place the filling in a zip loc bag and chill (for the thicker filling this is when you would put it in the cheese cloth – I recommend this step)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees

Unroll the pie crust onto a lightly floured surface.

Sprinkle the top of the crust with cinnamon and sugar. Go over the crust lightly with a rolling pin to push the cinnamon sugar mix into the dough.

Cut circles from your dough using a round cookie cutter. Press them into an un-greased mini muffin tin to make your cups.

Bake 8 – 10 minutes or until slightly golden brown.

Allow them to cool before adding your filling.
