Wow, I can’t believe it’s been 4 glorious years since I’ve started blogging! By God’s grace, I’ve been able to make great friends through my blog. I don’t know what I was thinking when I first registered my blog! I thought of sharing all the short cut Indian dishes that I prepare almost every day in my kitchen. That was put on the shelf and in these 4 years, I’ve blogged about so many different recipes. This blog has become my cookbook, a documentation of my recipes that I can go back to and make again and again if I forget the steps. And on my journey, I’ve conjured quite a few lifes! Believe me, I’ve got all those emails.
This occasion calls for a special celebration, right? So let’s celebrate my blog’s 4th birthday with these easy to make Cannoli cups. You can make cups using pie dough or phyllo. I’ve used store bought cups just to make my busy life easier. No crime in it, okay. One should take advantage of every help one could get from anywhere if that one is as busy as I am. So, choice is yours. Either make your cups or buy them pre-made.
Here’s how I made it.
2 packs of pre-made phyllo cups(available in freezer section of super markets)
1 cup homemade mascarpone cheese(didn’t I tell you I will make and use this cheese often?)
2 tbsp milk
1 tsp cinnamon powder
Mini chocolate chips
Mix cheese, milk and cinnamon powder with hand blender on medium speed.
Place the mixture in a piping bag.
Pipe the mixture onto the cups.
Garnish with mini chocolate chips and serve immediately.
You can make this mixture a couple days ahead and refrigerate it until you are ready to use.
