Cannoli Cake
Servings:

serving time 6 to 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 package phyllo sheets, thawed in the refrigerator overnight

  • 1/2 cup mascarpone cheese

  • 1/2 cup ricotta cheese

  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips

  • 1/4 cup heavy cream, whipped to soft peaks

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted

  • Powdered sugar, for dusting

  • 1/2 cup chopped pistachios

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine mascarpone, ricotta, powdered sugar, cinnamon and chocolate chips. Mix until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream and set aside.

  3. On a large work surface, lay out 3 sheets of phyllo dough horizontally. Make sure the edges of each sheet overlap by about 1 inch. Brush sheets with butter and lay 3 more on top. Repeat this until you have 4 layers; you will use 12 sheets total.

  4. Spoon filling vertically along the edge about one inch in. Roll dough up longways like a snake. Roll dough into a spiral shape and place in a greased springform pan. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and flaky. Allow to cool slightly before releasing from springform.

  5. Place on a cake stand and dust with powdered sugar and chopped pistachios. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream and more pistachios. Enjoy!
