The recipe makes 30 to 32 wafers. Use 12 for this recipe and reserve the remaining in a closed container.
The cannoli are made using a pizelle maker. A Pizzelle is a traditional Italian sugar cookie served plain or rolled into ice-cream cones or in this recipe into cannoli shells.


  • 2 eggs
    1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup melted butter
    1 cup milk
    1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoons vanilla Filling:
    16 oz Mascarpone
    1/3 cup whipping cream
    1/2 powdered sugar, plus more for garnish
    Garnish: chopped pistachio nuts


  • Beat eggs and sugar until light and creamy.
    Stir in the remaining ingredients until smooth.
    Preheat pizzelli maker.
    Spoon 2 tablespoons of batter onto the center of the baking surface of the pizzelli maker. Close the cover. Bake for about a minute.
    Cookies are baked when golden brown.
    While wafer is hot, shape into cannoli shells. Store in an airtight container.
    Whip the chilled cream until stiff peaks form. Add the powdered sugar. Whisk the mascarpone and gently fold in the whipped cream.
    Scoop filling into a piping bag fitted with a tip to fill each shell. Sprinkle chopped pistachios over each end of the filled cannoli and dust with powdered sugar.
