Making true Italian cannoli shells is arduous, so I tried this shortcut recipe from Gimme Some Oven. I have to admit, I had low expectations, but baking wonton shells actually looks pretty good (tastewise, baked wontons don't have much flavor. Alas, you can't beat frying)
|pretty sprinkles! <3|
1 package wonton wrappers
1 container (15 oz.) ricotta cheese
4 tablespoons cornstarch
1/3 to 1/2 cup powdered sugar (to taste)
3 oranges zested
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp cinnamon
semisweet chocolate chips and sprinkles
powdered sugar (for dusting)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Press wonton wrappers dusted with powdered sugar into a muffin pan to form the “cups.” (Be sure that the corners do not fold in!) Bake the cups for 10 minutes until the wrappers are golden brown. Remove and let cool.
To make the filling, stir together the ricotta cheese and confectioners' sugar using a spatula. Add vanilla, orange zest, and cinnamon.
Freeze to stiffen the filling then scoop into the shells (~1 hr). Top with sprinkles and powdered sugar.
