My family lives on Long Island, so I get to enjoy delicious pizza, real bagels, and other tasty delights whenever we go and visit. Unfortunately I developed an addiction the last time we were down there. My brother, very sweetly, brought home some desserts from the Alpine Bakery in Smithtown, NY. These desserts included some very innocuous looking cannoli. I actually ignored those cannoli for a while, who needs a cannoli when you can eat amazingly soft and delicious rainbow cookies???
But I was silly and it was a mistake I will never make again because once I took a bite of that cannoli, my world changed. I’m not really a dessert person but MAN, these cannoli were good. They had chocolate chips in the cannoli filling and the filling was probably 50% crack, it was so good. It had a sharpness to it and some lemony flavor and it was just yummmm, there just wasn’t enough to satiate my sudden addiction.
Which brings me to today. My husband thoughtfully brought some cannoli home from Villa Italia in Schenectady, NY. Let me just say this, Villa Italia makes a damn good cake, but they got nothing on those cannoli I had on Long Island.
