  • 50 g sugar
  • 1 pinch of salt

  • 30 g butter
  • 1 egg
  • ½ dl marsala or white port wine
  • Grated orange zest from ¼ orange
  • 50 g almond flakes
  • Oil for frying
  • Risalamande cream:
  • ½ kg rice pudding, preferably a little firm in consistency
  • 1 vanilla pod
  • 2 tbsp. vanilla syrup
  • 250 g mascarpone
  • ¼ litre whipping cream
  • 75 g chopped almonds
  • Optionally 2-3 tbsp. amaretto liqueur

1. Mix flour, sugar, salt and ground cinnamon. Crumble the butter into the flour mixture.

2. Beat the egg and add half of it to the batter along with the marsala and orange zest.

3. Knead the dough until smooth and wrap it in plastic wrap. Let it rest for 30 min. in the fridge.

4. Roll out the dough thinly on a floured surface. Sprinkle the dough with almond flakes when it is half rolled out so that the almond flakes are rolled into the dough.

5. Cut the dough into 10 cm rounds and pull them slightly to make them slightly oval. Wrap them around small metal tubes and brush the joint with egg.

6. Fry them golden and crispy in oil in a pan a few at a time at approx. 175° and place them on a piece of greaseproof paper. Carefully twist out the tube and make a new one.

7. Stir the rice pudding with the vanilla seeds and syrup.

8. Whip the mascarpone and cream to a thick and fluffy cream and fold into the porridge.

9. Add chopped almonds and season to taste with extra vanilla syrup and amaretto.

10. Put the cream in a piping bag and fill the cannoli with it.

11. Garnish with pureed cherry sauce and serve immediately.

TIP: Cannoli can easily be made several days in advance.
