HOW TO MAKE ITALIAN CREAM STUFFED CANNONCINI?
With its wide range of pasta and pizza meals as well as seasonal vegetables, meat, and fresh seafood, we all agree that Italian cuisine is one of the most fascinating in the world. There is also a large selection of sweet desserts so that even if you skip one, the meal isn’t complete.
Whatever the season, everyone enjoys a delicious tiramisu, a creamy panna cotta garnished with fresh fruits, or a great large scoop of gelato, whether it’s summer or winter. Then there are the “pasticcini,” which are little bite-size sweets like Italian cream puffs, tartlets, and so on. The “cannoncino,” which is a sweet delicacy in this category and a particular favorite of mine, is one such sweet delight.
This traditional Piedmontese dessert, which is also very popular in many Northern and Central Italian areas, is filled with cream and baked. It is possible to get Cannoncini filled with various pastry creams while visiting an Italian pastry store, but the most popular filling is without a doubt the Vanilla Pastry Cream, which can be found in most pastry shops across the country. The recipe for the delectable Cannoncini is provided below!
A few hours before serving, or at the very least a few hours before serving, the pastry horns are often filled with cream. Some cooks like to put a little dusting of powdered sugar on top of the Cannoncini before serving.
A sheet pastry dough; measure 9X9-inches square.
12 Cannoncini molds.
200 grams.Of caster sugar.
PASTRY CREAM INGREDIENTS:
4 large egg yolks
200 ml.Of whole milk.
45 ml.Of heavy cream.
70 grams.Of caster sugar.
25 grams.Of cornstarch.
Lemon Zest, I used a quarter lemon.
vanilla extract; half a small spoon.
THIS IS HOW TO MAKE THE ICE CREAM WITH PASTRY:
Pour the milk into a large saucepan along with the heavy cream, the lemon peels, and the vanilla essence and bring to a simmer.
Preheat the pot over medium heat until the liquid reaches a temperature of 165 to 170 degrees Fahrenheit, then turn off the heat and cover with a lid.
Then, beat the yolks and sugar together until light yellow and fluffy, then gradually add the cornstarch, a tablespoon at a time, whisking constantly until the mixture is thoroughly combined.
The hot milk and cream infusion (without the lemon peels) should be added at this stage and whisked until well incorporated.
Finally, pour the mixture back into the saucepan and cook it over medium heat, stirring constantly, until it becomes thick, for about 5 minutes.
Fill a bowl with the pastry cream and cover with plastic wrap until it reaches room temperature, then keep in the refrigerator for up to 48 hours before serving.
AND TO MAKE THE SHELLS OF CANNONCINI, FOLLOW THESE TWO AESY STEPS:
If you’re using pastry dough sheets, the most important thing to remember is to keep them cool; otherwise, the dough will start to lose its consistency.
So work fast and keep the pastry in the freezer for no more than 3 minutes (no more than that) if it becomes necessary later on.
