Taranta's Guavannolis

Comments

This dessert puts a Peruvian spin on the traditional Italian cannoli.
 

Ingredients

1/4 cup guava paste
1/4 cup guava concentrate
1 cup ricotta cheese
2 Tbs. Strega liqueur
3 cannoli shells
Pistachio brittle
Powdered sugar

Directions

Add guava paste and concentrate to a hot saucepan. Stir to melt, adding water to keep from burning.

Pour melted guava mixture into a cold bowl to quickly chill it.

Combine guava and ricotta and whisk together, adding Strega liqueur.

Scoop mixture into piping bag and pipe into cannoli shells.

Place filled guavannollis on a plate and top with pistachio brittle and sprinkled powdered sugar.

Serves: 3
