Cannoli are Sicilian pastry desserts. The singular is cannolo (or in the Sicilian language cannolu), meaning “little tube”, with the etymology stemming from the Latin ”canna”, or reed. Cannoli originated in Sicily and are an essential part of Sicilian cuisine. They are also popular in Italian American cuisine and in the United States are known as a general Italian pastry, while they are specifically Sicilian in origin (in Italy, they’re commonly known as “cannoli siciliani”,Sicilian cannoli).
Cannoli consist of tube-shaped shells of fried pastry dough, filled with a sweet, creamy filling usually containing ricotta. They range in size from “cannulicchi”, no bigger than a finger, to the fist-sized proportions typically found in Piana degli Albanesi, south of Palermo, Sicily.
I have an answer to the age old question “What do they call a Danish in Denmark?”.

I know. I was as surprised as you.
Actually, most places call it wienerbrød, especially at bakeries, but the coffee shop where I went had a sign in front calling it a “danish”.
Yup. I posted a piece on politics. This is my penance.
For the record? These aren’t that healthy for you either. But I would argue that they are still good for the soul.
Because when I talk about politics, I get to respond to that with pure, unadulterated, food lust.
Really, what more can one say?
