  • Cook in the preheated oven for 6 minutes, then take out the pan and quickly take a wafer, turn it upside down and roll it on a stainless-steel cannoli form, or on the handle of a wooden spoon and pressing a little at the end so the edges do not reopen.

  • Fill them with ricotta cream with the help of a pastry bag just before serving,
    because otherwise the wafer, with the humidity from filling, would lose its
    crunchiness.
