Date: Fri, 15 Mar 1996 13:22:14 -0500 From: (Eileen
& Bob Holze) Dough: Use your electric mixer. In a mixing bowl measure
1 cup flour, sugar, salt and cinnamon.. Attach bowl and dough hook.
Turn to medium-slow speed and blend for approximately 45 seconds. With
the mixer running, add vinegar, water, egg and butter. Mix to blend
for 2 to 3 minutes. Add remaining flour, 1/4 cup at a time, as needed
to make a dough that clings to the hook. Knead for 5 minutes. If dough
clings to the sides of the bowl, add sprinkles of flour. Dough will
be smooth and elastic. Wrap the soft dough in foil or plastic and
refrigerate to relax and chill for at least 1 hour. Heat at least 2
inches of vegetable oil to 375 degrees. Place dough on a floured work
surface and roll extremely thin-- 1/16 inch or less! Don't rush. When
the dough pulls back, allow it to relax. If it softens and sticks,
return it to the frig for 5 or 10 minutes. Cut 4 1/2 inch circles
(size of a many small margarine tub lids!) Roll the dough scraps out
and continue until all dough is used. You should have 12 to 14
circles. 6. When the circles are cut, roll again just before placing
on the cannoli tubes. This will give them an oval shape, about 5
inches by 4 7. Place the dough so that its longest dimension is the
length of the metal tube. Brush the tip of the dough with egg white
to seal. Toll dough on the tube. 8. Deep frying. The length of time
will depend of the thickness of the shells. A very thin shell will
need about 2 minutes. A thicker shell could require up to 6 minutes.
Fry two or three at a time. Turn over once during frying. Fry until
golden brown. Remove with tongs. Cool for a few minutes and then push
the tubes free to use again. Cool shells completely before filling.
Filling Cream ricotta cheese in a bowl with a spatula or wooden
spoon or with an electric mixer until smooth, about 5 minutes. Add
confectioners' sugar, vanilla, candied fruit, chocolate, cinnamon and
orange curacao. Continue beating another 4 or 5 minutes. Refrigerate
until ready to fill shells. Use a small spoon to stuff the filling
into the shells. Dip the ends in chopped nuts. Sift confectioners'
sugar over the shells and serve. Unfilled shells can be stored in a
cool, dry place for three to four weeks, or frozen for three month
NOTES : This is the one my family prepares for those special
occasions... from Bernard Clayton's The Complete Book of Pastry. My
notes say-- Absolutely terrific. Time consuming, but not tricky. You
do need cannoli tubes, available from most kitchenware stores. They
are metal tubes about 6 inches long and 3/4 inch in diameter. Sold in
sets of 4 which is the number you'll need. Hope you enjoy this! It is
worth it, as well as an adventure. Makes 12 to 14 pastries.
