Ingredients
For the Pastry
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup gluten free all-purpose flour
  • 8 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/4 tsp salt
For the Cannoli Cream
  • 8 oz mascarpone
  • 8 oz ricotta cheese
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp almond extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  2. In a mixing bowl add mascarpone, ricotta, vanilla extract, almond extract, powdered sugar and cinnamon. Mix all ingredients together until well combined. Refrigerate until puffs are ready.
  3. In a sauce pan over medium-low heat add butter, milk and salt. Slowly bring to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, add flour and stir quickly. When a dough-ball forms, remove from heat.
  5. Stir in eggs one at a time, completely mixing one in before adding the next, until all eggs are incorporated into the dough. Stir until dough is completely smooth.
  6. On a lightly greased (or non-stick) baking sheet drop dough in 1-2 inch balls, leaving at least an inch between each ball.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown an cooked through. Remove from oven and allow to cool.
  8. Once cooled, cut pastries in half and evenly distribute cannoli filling among pastries, about 2 tbsp filling each.
Recipe Notes

When adding eggs, you can use a hand mixer or a stand mixer with a wide paddle.
You can also pipe the filling into the puffs using a pastry bag. Make a small hole in the pastry and pipe the filling directly into the puff.
