From the kitchen of Connie Putano. The shells and filling
can be made ahead of time. Fill the shells just before

Roll dough as thin as possible.

What I learned making Grandma Connie's cannoli... -Stephanie
- Add more flour, at least 1/2 c, maybe 1 c.
- Let dough rest 1 hour?? Research.
- Divide dough into 11 balls.
- Roll each ball out into a circle- this guarantees they are the same size and right
- Use a beaten egg to seal the dough.
- Use a candy thermometer to heat oil to 350.
- I used an entire bottle of oil. Watch the thermometer. The stove setting may need to
be lowered to maintain the 350.
- I had 2 lb (a 32 oz container) of ricotta, so I used 2/3 c heavy cream, 2 lb ricotta,
2/3 c sugar.
