Detail of Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Inside Out Cannolis

Cannolis are always popular, but they take forever to make! All that forming and stuffing of shells is enough to give anyone a headache. This recipe combines the classic mixture of ingredients for a dessert that tastes just as good, and is much easier to make and transport. We like serving these with fresh fruit and a drizzle or two of chocolate sauce, but they are great plain.

1 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup sugar
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
15 ounces ricotta cheese
2/3 cup miniature chocolate chips
16 pizzelle cookies, cut into small wedges
Fresh fruit (optional)
Chocolate sauce (optional)

In a large chilled bowl, whip the heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla together until soft peaks form. Fold in the ricotta and chocolate chips. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, and up to 24 hours before serving. Spoon about 1/2 cup of the cheese mixture into serving dishes. Arrange the pizzelle wedges around the dishes. Top with the optional fruit and chocolate sauce if desired and serve.

Makes 8 servings.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
