After just getting back from the most beautiful (and delicious) vacation in the Amalfi Coast, and although the gelato was to die for....we couldn't stop thinking about one dessert in particular. The cannoli. 

The Cannoli originated in Sicily and are a staple of Sicilian Cuisine. They are also popular in Italian American cuisine (which is where I first discovered these mouth-watering treats). In Italy, they are commonly known as "cannoli siciliani" or as I called them, "little slices of heaven". It's flakey pastry shell is filled with a luscious oozing frosting that can be dipped in chocolate, topped with sprinkles, chocolate chips, caramel and powdered sugar. 

There. Is. Nothing. Better. 

For those of you that don't know... now you know.
