  1. Let rest in plastic wrap for a little while (about 1 hour). Roll out dough to 1/8” thick or use a pasta machine. Cut into 5” squares.
  2. Place cannoli tube across the corners of the square. Fold one corner around the tube, then the other and press together.
  3. Use egg wash on one side of dough. Fry in deep oil until golden brown. Let cool before filling.
  4. Strain ricotta cheese a day before to make sure all the water is removed. If it is still wet, add corn starch or a little sugar.
  5. Cream ricotta, orange peel, rum and sugar, mixing well. Fill shells with filling. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
