My mom has been making cannolis for years, but I could never replicate her secret recipe, so I one I used Tre Stelle's. My friends tell me that this recipe is better than my mom's! Thanks Tre Stelle!
Classic sicilian cannoli
24 Cannoli shells
1 tub (475 g) Tre Stelle® Ricotta Cheese

1/4 tsp (1 mL) cinnamon
