Our Italian Family loved these! This is a great fix when regular cannoli shells are not available. I'll make these again.

I made these for a dinner party we had, and every one love them! They went away wanting more and I have requests to make some more. They were really easy to make and tasted wonderful.

very good..whole family loved this recipe will def make again


Perfect for entertaining

I am looking for a Valintine's day dessert so I tried this one out on my bunko group. I cut the wonton wrappers into heart shapes before I fried them (watch them closely) and then continued on to follow the recipe. However we decided that they might be better with a bit of whipped cream on top and a strawberry or pistacio nuts rather than the raspberry since they are supposed to be cannoli. I used marscapone instead of regular cream cheese and added a touch of vanilla as another reviewer suggested. I made the filling a day ahead of time so that the flavors had plenty of time to marry and I think it paid off. There was no texture problem and they tasted great with actually very little cooking as most of it was just assembling the components. I will make this one again.
