Ricotta must be dry, I drain in a sieve with weight on top over night, I also used powdered sugar as I think it blends better.
The dough recipe actually made over 30 shells, I rolled them as thin as I could as they swell up and blister, only take 2-3 mins not 8. I used mixed peel/candied peel not citron but the taste was overpowering so you could not taste the chocolate or the original cannoli taste I first had as a teen, (just the ricotta and sugar and nothing else) I have just made another batch without the fruit or choc, next time I may use 1/2 cup choc and 1/4 cup peel as I think this may balance out the flavours better. I actually have this exact recipe on the back of an old box of cannoli forms made by hoan, I think the 8 mins deef frying was prob an eror and should read 3 as 8 mins would turn them black.
