Tasty Cannoli Tubes Recipe

Cannoli is an authentic Italian dessert which belongs to Sicily. It is a delectable dessert with crispy fried cannoli tubes, that are filled with sweetened ricotta cheese and succade, a fruit extract which is encrusted with sugar crystals.


  • cups Vegetable Oil
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 2 tablespoons Sugar
  • 6 tablespoons Sherry Wine
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt


  • Sift the flour and add sugar and salt.
  • Make a well in the center, add the sherry and work to a smooth, fairly stiff dough (add a little more sherry if necessary).
  • Knead the dough on a lightly floured board for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.
  • Cover and chill in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  • Remove from the refrigerator and allow dough to reach room temperature.
  • Roll as thinly as possible and cut into 3 1/2 inch circles.
  • Roll circles around the tubes, moisten the edges with water and press down to firmly seal.
  • Turn out ends of dough so as to flare slightly.
  • Heat the vegetable oil to 350 – 375 F and fry several cannoli at a time in a fry basket until golden brown (takes about 1 minute).
  • Lift out and drain on paper towels and remove cannoli tubes.
  • Use your favorite filling to stuff the cannoli.
