Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Can't find premade cannoli shells? Try cutting flour tortillas into 3-inch squares, then frying them in hot oil. Layer the crisps with the cannoli filling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar and enjoy a Napoleon-like version of this delicious recipe!
  • tip 2
    Get Crazy! Decorate the ends of your cannoli with all sorts of fun toppings! Try roasted pumpkin seeds, dark chocolate shavings or cinnamon-flavored baking chips!
