This is one of the most delicious Italian desserts. Everyone visiting Italy has to try this traditional Sicilian pastry dessert. The tube-shaped shells of the cannoli are made from frying pastry dough, before being filled with a sweet ricotta cream. The cream can be flavoured with different flavours such as chocolate, pistachio, hazelnut, almond, lemon and others.
