Spiced Chai Cannolis

FTC Disclosure12 daysI realized that I had not done a cannoli recipe for Christmas. Well, I did do one but that was a guest post on another blog. I haven’t done one here though and realized that totally needed to be rectified immediately. Since I also needed some more baked goods for one of the kid’s schools I decided to make some Spiced Chai Cannolis.

I have to say that up until now my Biscoff cannolis have been my favorite. Then I tried these. I now have a new favorite. These or so very, very good! I mean like you could possibly eat the bowl of filling and not even realize it. Best thing though is you can make a cup of spiced chai and enjoy them with that. Then you get double spiced chai! Seriously, if you are a chai fan then you really do need to try this.

The other great part about this is that I found a new place to get cannoli shells. Same brand I always use and at half the cost! Thank you Mariano’s (A Roundy’s store) for having such a huge selection of international foods! Now I will be able to make even more cannolis. Yay!

Pumpkin Pie Cannoli

by Jennifer Wieland
Pumpkin Pie Cannoli - My Sweet Sanity

With Halloween now past, it’s time to move on to the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday here in the U.S. Thanksgiving has always been a favorite holiday of mine. You see my birthday falls on or near it every year. So for me I always get a big family get together and a feast for my birthday. Since I was a kid Thanksgiving was always when we celebrated my birthday and that tradition continues. Since this is when we celebrate I always like to make sure I have amazing fall desserts for my birthday treats and this year will be no exception.

This year one of the treats we will be having is pumpkin pie cannoli. For those of you that regularly follow you know my mother has a sort of love affair with cannoli filling. What you didn’t know was up until this year I had always adamantly refused to try a cannoli. There was just something about sweet flavored cheese that freaked me out a bit. I don’t know why. Everyone has their quirks and that was just one of mine. So one day I decided to make some Biscoff cannolis for my mom and as any good cook knows you have to taste to make sure things are right. So I tasted and not only were they right but they were amazing and my only thought was, “Wow, have I been missing out all these years!” I have since made these Dark Chocolate Dreams P.B. cannolis and now pumpkin pie ones too.
