Sicily – The Cannoli

Cannoli are Italian pastries consisting of tube-shaped shells of fried pastry dough, filled with a sweet, creamy filling containing ricotta, a staple of Sicilian cuisine.  Delicious.

Whenever we stopped for morning coffee break it always involved a cannoli.

  3. I wonder how many calories it is? I bet it’s quite a few!


  4. Now you’re talking my language! I expect you like churros too?


  5. I prefer savouries – but this certainly looks appetising


  6. Funnily enough, I’ve never seen these. Are they peculiar to Sicily, rather than Italy generally?


  7. Not a bad habit!


  8. Some of the cafes here sell them, but they look nothing like as good as that!


  9. They are so good. Now I want one!
