Cannoli

You don't have to be of Italian heritage to appreciate the flavor of cannoli. If you've never had the pleasure, we insist that you go out and try one immediately. Once you enjoy the fried dough filled with sweetened, flavored ricotta cheese, it's highly likely you'll add a new favorite to your list of top desserts.

Cannoli can be artfully stacked on platters or served in individual portions to each table or seat. Common options include chocolate, marsala and pistachio, although creative chefs can experiment with other flavors with a little bit of guidance from the bride and groom.
