Mini Cannoli Dough – recipe – part 3 – non wonton option


If you insist, here’s how to make your own cannoli dough.  But we’ll have to call them non-wonton cannoli.

The advantage of using the wonton wrappers for the shells, of course, is to save some time and work.  But if you have a pasta maker or like to roll out dough, here’s how to make your own dough for the shells.  See part 1 and part 2 for the rest of the recipe.


1.5 cups – shifted all-purpose flour

2 tablespoons – sugar

1/4 cup – vegetable shortening

1 egg yolk

1/4 cup – dry white wine

Mix together flour and sugar.  Cut in the shortening.  Stir the egg yolk into the wine.   Mix the egg/wine into the flour.  Continue to mix the dough until the dough is stiff.  Cover and let the dough rest 30 minutes.  Divide the dough in half.  Cover one half.  Roll out the second half paper-thin.  Cut 3 inch squares from rolled dough.  Adjust the size of your squares to fit your cannoli tubes.  Fry the squares as indicated in part 2.  Fill the fried tubes as in part 1.
