Cannolis with Ricotta and Mascarpone

Cannolis! My good friend *Asino told me to make cannolis awhile ago, and i finally found the time to make them!

Here's what you do!

 1 3/4 cup flour
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoon butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup marsala wine
1 egg

mix together the flour, sugar, salt, and butter until the butter is well-incorporated and resemble small peas.

 mix together the egg and marsala wine

 add the egg mixture a little at a time into the flour mixture while mixing well

 knead it all together to form a ball, then wrap it in plastic and let it rest in the fridge for 30 minutes so it'll be easier to work with

 roll the dough very flat, about 1/8 inch thick.

 cut into squares (i used a post-it!) you can also cut them into circles!

crack another egg and spread the egg wash onto the open end of the dough and seal.

Fry in corn oil (or any other high heat oil) in medium heat until browned (but not burnt!)

 tada! i filled it with my homemade mascarpone and ricotta cheese, with dark chocolate chips, sprinkled with powdered sugar on top.

*for the filling, i mixed 1 cup of ricotta with 1/4 cup of mascarpone and 1/2 cup of sugar. then fill the cannolis with a piping bag or ziploc bag!
