Pumpkin Filled Cannoli Cones

Pumpkin Cannoli1  First, I would like to thank everyone who voted for me! I appreciate every single vote I got! I will be letting you know if I won the contest {and that trip to Hawaii}! If I do end up getting the grand prize, then I am going to have to write almost 400 thank you cards! You all are awesome and I love you! :) Seriously, you are the best.

So, because you are all so great, I thought I would post yet another pumpkin recipe. Let the fall recipes roll on! Are you getting sick of these?

I’m not.

But if you are, speak up and I’ll move onto other non-pumpkin delights.

Until then, lets talk cannoli.

Let me preface this recipe by saying I’m not Italian. Do I know how to make traditional cannoli? Yes, but only because I read an article about it in a Martha Stewart Magazine one time. Are these traditional? No, because I don’t have time to make the cannoli shells myself from scratch. I have a child.

One day  I will attempt to make them, but today is not that day. And tomorrow isn’t looking good either.

In the mean time I give you all permission to take the short cut and use sugar cones.

The filling recipe I came up with calls for ricotta cheese {which is pretty common in cannoli}, pumpkin puree, sugar, vanilla and some spices. Oh and cream. Everything tastes better with cream! {See this recipe, this recipe or this recipe for examples!}

Overall, this takes about 5 minutes to whip up and then maybe another 5 to pipe into the cones. I topped mine with some chocolate chips and walnuts because it seemed like the right thing to do. Also, chocolate makes everything taste better! {See this recipe, this recipe or this recipe for examples!}

Hope you enjoy this recipe! We sure did! Happy Monday! :)

Spoon or pipe into sugar cones and top with chocolate chips and walnuts. Serve.

        Tried your recipe the consistency is nothing like any canolli I have ever had. Is the filling supposed to be refrigerated or something? It taste awesome, but not pastry like.

    This is a brilliant idea! I never would have thought to put the cannoli filling inside of sugar cones. And that pumpkin filling…oh my!

    I want to be mad at you for posting this recipe. Instead, the feeling is just the opposite.
    My hips, however, will never be the same again…:)

      You can use light ricotta cheese and leave out the cream if you want…won’t be AS good, but still tasty!

    Just made these for a youth group meeting at my place tonight :) I ended up adding a bit extra cinnamon (I looooove cinnamon!) and I coated the inside of my cones in melted ghirardelli chocolate chips :D

    Made these tonight, absolutely wonderful.. trying to figure out why it was so soft that it just ran out of the cone (could have been a little warm in the kitchen) HOWEVER ! I fashioned something to keep them upright, piped it in, stuck it in the freezer and they made delicious semi-frozen treats!

    I actually don’t like the pre-made cannoli shells. They usually taste stale to me so this is a GREAT idea. Much tastier!!!!!

    I love anything pumpkin and this recipe sounds delightful. So pretty to present as a dessert at a gathering. I’m going to make this for this coming weekend, but I’m thinking of dipping the sugar cone edges in melted chocolate first. Extra chocolate can never hurt in my opinion. Thank you so much for your recipe
