Cannoli from Sicily (traditionally made with ricotta di Pecora - sheep's milk ricotta) is one of the things that inspired us to become cheesemakers!  You haven't had a cannoli until you've had one made with traditional ricotta!  Enjoy in a cannoli shell or on its own! You can even serve with pieces of pizzelle cookies for a sweet “chips & dip," or we love creating a toppings bar for a fun party dessert!


  • 1 basket Caputo Brothers Creamery Ricotta
  • ¼ cup powdered sugar
  • pinch of fine sea salt
  • Cannoli shells
  • chocolate chips (chopped pistachio optional, sprinkles, etc...)


  1. Turn the basket of fresh ricotta into your food processor.
  2. Add ¼ cup powdered sugar and a pinch of salt.
  3. Blend for several minutes until smooth.
  4. Add more sugar or salt if desired.
  5. Spoon into a piping bag, and pipe into cannoli shell, ensuring there is filling all the way through and out the ends.
  6. Dip each end in chocolate chips (or one in chips, one in pistachio), then dust with powdered sugar (if serving immediately).

Buon Appetito!
