Fresh Fruit with Cannoli Cream

Fresh Fruit with Cannoli Cream

Prep: 12 minutes

In traditional cannoli, a well-known Sicilian dessert, pastry tubes ("pipes") are deep-fried and filled with sweet ricotta cream. We eliminated the time-consuming pastry, greatly reducing the calories and fat. But we kept the best part--the cannoli cream--and spooned it over fresh fruit.
