Cookies and Cream Cannoli Cones Recipe

Cookies and Cream Cannoli Cones Recipe, can't find cannoli shells? don't feel like baking one? no problem how about waffle cones instead. Enjoy this sweet on the go treat this summer! Crunchy, Creamy and Sweet, yum
Hola Amigos! Another week comes to an end which brings us to the end of summer. I can't help to start getting in the mood for earthier  flavors on main dishes and desserts  even though the official start of fall is more than a month away (Sept.22) , do you feel the same way?
But...let's not rush it and have a few more rounds of fun and easy going summer treats! Just like this one!
I set my mind the other day to make homemade cannoli. Easier said than done. First,  I couldn't find cannoli shells anywhere and I didn't feel like baking any either, after all it's supposed to be an easy dessert. So I improvised and used waffle cones and then myy mix turned out a little softer than I wanted to fill the cones so I turned them into parfait by crushing almond cookies into the mix. Problem solved and a wonderful refreshing dessert was born!
Cookies and Cream Cannoli Cones Recipe, Creamy and Crunchy, the classic Italian dessert, takes a turn by the use of waffle cones and crushed almond cookies! Delicious summer treat!

I tell you, I think I like these better than if they were the real thing! Easy to handle, no forks or plates, Mobile, the kids took them outside right away.Crunchy, crumble cookies in the inside and crunchy waffle cone on the outside and Creamy...the cannoli filling just the way you like it!

I plan on doing this recipe for family gatherings for now on...I can see it already it would be a hit coming Thanksgiving...well it won't replace the pie...but, who knows!

Most of my ingredients I had at hand, I just had to buy the ricotta and it was on sale too! So it's an inexpensive dessert to feed at least 8, depending how generous you are with your cone filling.
Another summer dessert for you my friends. I hope you give this one a try! is worth every single calorie, I promise you that!
Cookies and Cream Cannoli Cones Recipe, treat your family to this sweet, crunchy and creamy treat tasting just like your traditional Italian Restaurant dessert but made from the comfort of your home, Waffle cones, almond cookies and creamy ricotta would make this dessert one of your favorite summer treats!

Oh one more thing, even though traditional cannoli is not a dessert that should be frozen by any means, my son couldn't finish his 3rd and froze his and had it like a real ice cream cone the next day...so seems to me it works as a frozen dessert too!



Thank You for stopping by! Put on your shades, go outside and enjoy the sunshine. Remember that no matter the season, everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!


Besitos,
Lizy

  5. Liz, These look so yummy! I have never had cannoli! I noticed Cookie Butter in the ingredients. Is that a special butter I don't know about. Obviously, I do not cook much!

    1. Hi Gina! No worries, it's a fun Italian dessert, I don't have it often either because sometimes they don't make it sweet enough to my taste or the texture is not there, The Cookie butter is also know as Biscoff ( I just found about this name) you can find it at your local store or I buy mine at Trader Joes. Thank you so much for stopping by, will be visiting you shortly!

    1. Natashalh, I have to confess I'm not a big fan of ricotta, something about it's texture, but when you mix it up with the cookies, you really can't tell you are eating ricotta! Give them a try, they are really tasty. Thank You for your visit!
