If you're in need of a weekend project, let this cannoli recipe take center stage. Yes, it’s a labor of love, but the light, crispy, pleasantly sweet shell bursting with creamy ricotta is simply irresistible—and worth every step. Mini chocolate chips and pistachios add texture to each bite. Splurge on a nicer batch of ricotta to avoid a runny filling and achieve a luscious result. And here's another tip: be sure to roll the dough tightly around the mold before you fry it holds its shape. The light dusting of powdered sugar is the only finishing touch you need.
