Cannoli Filling


2 cups ricotta cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1 t. vanilla

Fill each shell with cheese mixture using a narrow spatula or knife. Dip ends of filled shells in chopped pistachio nuts or miniature chocolate bits. Dust with powdered sugar.

You can buy cannoli shells at Cost Plus ready for filling . . .

P.S. I don't ever remember tasting cinnamon in cannoli filling, so I will go extra light with it the first time I mix this up.
