Almond Cannoli with Lemon-Basil Ricotta Cream Filling
Homemade cannoli shells are filled with a creamy lemon and ricotta cheese filling with a hint of fresh basil for a gourmet dessert. For a shortcut, you can substitute purchased cannoli shells (8 full-size or 16 mini).
Test Kitchen Tip: We do not recommend using a sugar substitute for this recipe.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare cannoli shells and filling as directed. Place shells in an airtight container and store at room temperature up to 3 days. Place filling in an airtight container and chill up to 3 days. To serve, let filling stand at room temperature for 30 minutes to soften slightly. Fill and garnish shells as directed.
