Crepe Cannoli

An exclusive from Niloufer's Kitchen

The Crepe Cannoli

This is an exclusive recipe that was created many years ago in Niloufer's Kitchen after eating a dessert on my travels to Australia. It became very popular among friends and family and its time to share this yummy goodness.

While an authentic Cannoli is fried dough that is filled with sweet ricotta cheese; a local delicacy of Sicily. I have filled whipped sweet cream cheese into crepes which are then rolled into the tube shape to showcase the what could be a take on a cannoli. It is soft and delicious; the perfect romantic celebratory dessert?

Sweet cream cheese filled crepes served with assorted fresh berries

Fresh Summer Berries

Will make and fill 10 crepes

Beat together until smooth

250 gm/8oz creamcheese; at room temp

pinch of salt
12 tbsp icing sugar
2 tsp vanilla

slowly add until light and fluffy

3/4th cup fresh cream

Stop the machine at least twice to scrape down the sides for a more uniform result. Continue to beat until thick. Taste for sweetness if desired.

Fill the crepes with the filling generously. roll each one and place in an oven proof dish. 

Warm in a preheated oven of 300F/150C degrees for 5 to 7 minutes at most.  
Serve with fresh berries of choice.

Use your favourite cream cheese, preferably one that has a 'sweetness' to it.

If you prefer, 'tuck' the sides of the crepe in before rolling. This will prevent the cheese from oozing out when you warm them.
