Instead of making a traditional cannoli, make this recipe as a deconstructed cannoli. Make it as a dip and serve with a waffer cookie. I used my waffle cone griddle to make waffers, then I cut them in sixths. I would also suggest mixing the ricotta cheese, sugar, orange peel & cinnamon ahead of time and then folding in the whip cream portion of the recipe. The flavors seem to meld better.

1. The ricotta should be dried. I place mine on a doubled piece of cheescloth in a strainer. I add a small dish and some weight on the cheese so it forces water out into a bowl, about 4 hours all refrigerated. Reserve the liquid. 2. I use 1 and 1/2 cups of powdered sugar. It's smoother. 3. I also "food process" the cheese, sugar, cinnamon and vanilla with a metal blade. The results are extremely smooth. If it were too stiff after adding the heavy cream you can adjust with the reserved liquid. SimplyVincenzo.
