What a fabbbbulous recipe! Making the dough was a piece of cake...and I was ALONE! It sounds intimidating, but one does NOT need a whole family or neighborhood to get involved, although it could be a little more fun. Firstly, I mixed all the dry ingredients in my food processor for 10 sec. (I also added 1/2 tsp of cocoa powder), then added the 3 tbsp of lard and pulsed for another 10 sec. In a separate container, I mixed all the wet ingredients and the eggs together. Through my food processor hole, I slowly added the liquid mixture while the processor was running. Once all the liquid was combined, I let the processor run for appx another minute until all the ingredients formed into a ball. Pulled the dough out, and kneaded for 2-3 min then covered with plastic and threw the dough in the fridge for an overnight rest. Voila...I bought a pasta roller attachment for my Kitchen Aid to flatten the dough and it worked like a breeze. The end result was wonderful. The cannoli had a beautiful smell from the marsala wine. I filled some of the cannolis with the ricotta filling ( I used fresh ricotta - not the impatasta bcuz I cannot find any in Quebec, Canada), and others with homemade gelato. For the ricotta filling, I also added a few tbsp of mascarpone as suggested and it gave the filling a nice smell as well. Thank you so much for sharing this great recipe.
