Ok, I'm a few (24) hours late posting this challenge, but it really wasn't my fault!
It was the sun's fault.
Yes, the sun. If you have ever been to the north in the Fall/Winter you may have noticed a lack of something. Sun. Yes people, we invented SAD. The sun went on vacation to Florida for a week and then another week and...yeah, you get the idea.
I refused to do the challenge until I had natural light to photograph my cannoli! It was a great excuse!
Yesterday the sun came out.
Entonces - aqui estan!
If you want the recipe, please go to Lisa Michele's site.
Rolling the dough out.
Use those muscles!
I tried to use a pasta maker loaned to me by my parents.
Stupid machine ate half my dough before I gave up using it.
I found taking a small piece and rolling it out super, super thin and then wrapping the piece around the cannolo form worked the best.
My cannoli forms.
My part of the country is better known for leftsa, than for cannoli, so it was impossible to find cannoli forms.
Except.....my Mom went to the local hardware store and found these lengths of pipe for me!
Are real cannoli forms heavy?
Rolling dough around form.
Dough ready for frying.
Dough fresh from the fryer.
My entry for the Royal Foodie Joust.
So, what did I think of this challenge?
