While going through some old things, my Dad found an article from many, many years ago where they published my grandmother’s canolli recipe…so we spent the day trying to recreate it. I have to say, we did a pretty darn good job! Got the shells down, but still working on the cream. We also made some crespelle…my all time favorite italian dessert. So light and airy with a touch of honey and powdered sugar. These are so light they can’t possibly have any calories can they?!
My dad made some canolli sticks for us and voila!
This was only a fraction of the shells we made. They were everywhere, but they didn’t last long!
