RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is a recipe I learned in school, many years ago. Cannoli are Italian filled cookies. You wouldn't believe what they're filled with, or how delicious they are! They're quite small, too. I've modified it some, because these days, some people may be trying to cut down on sugar. My alternative is, from a cactus. Also for the abc method bakers! A picture will come later.
