Ingredients:

For the Cannoncini Dough:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, chilled and diced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sweetener (suitable for baking)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold water

For the Italian Cream Filling:

  • 1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
  • 1/2 cup non-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup powdered sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of one lemon

For the Topping:

  • Confectioners’ sugar for dusting

Instructions:

Step 1: Preparing the Cannoncini Dough

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sweetener, and salt. Add the chilled, diced butter and use a pastry cutter or your fingers to incorporate it into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Gradually add cold water and mix until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a disc, wrap it in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

Step 2: Shaping and Baking Cannoncini

  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Roll out the chilled dough on a floured surface to 1/8-inch thickness.
  2. Cut the dough into rectangles and roll each rectangle around a metal cone or cannoli mold, sealing the edge with a dab of water.
  3. Place the rolled dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Let them cool completely.

Step 3: Preparing the Italian Cream Filling

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine ricotta cheese, Greek yogurt, powdered sweetener, vanilla extract, and lemon zest. Mix until smooth and creamy.

Step 4: Assembling the Cannoncini

  1. Once the cannoncini shells are cooled, fill them generously with the Italian cream mixture using a piping bag.
  2. Dust the filled cannoncini with a sprinkle of confectioners’ sugar for an elegant finish.
