“This recipe is from Pepperidge Farms. Mmmmmm I just love puff pastry!”
12 cannoli cups

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Thaw the pastry at room temperature for 40 minutes or until it’s easy to handle. Spray 12 (2 1/2-inch) muffin pan cups with cooking spray. Heat the oven to 375°F.
  2. Unfold the pastry sheet on a lightly floured surface. Roll the sheet into a 12 x 9-inch rectangle. Cut into 12 (3-inch) squares. Press squares into the prepared muffin pan cups. Brush the top edges of pastry with the egg and prick the bottom of the pastry cups with a fork.
  3. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Using a small knife, cut a small slit in the puffed center and gently push down. Remove pastry cups from pan and cool completely.
  4. Place the ricotta cheese, sugar, vanilla, 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon and orange peel, if desired, in a medium bowl. Beat with a whisk until smooth. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
  5. Pipe or spoon a heaping tablespoon of the ricotta mixture into each pastry cup. Sprinkle with the chocolate, nuts or additional cinnamon, if desired. Serve immediately. Makes 12 desserts.
  6. TIP: Time Saving Tip: The ricotta filling mixture can be made 1 day ahead.
