Cannoli Crumb Pie

Cannoli Crumb PieI can never say 'no' to a new way to make cannoli. I've made Cannoli Dip and a parfait called Cannoli Cream Dessert. So why not make a Cannoli Crumb Pie? This pie got rave reviews from a food friend of mine, so that was even more incentive for me to try it!

This pie was so very easy to make and so very delicious! My hubby loved it so much that he asked me to make a second pie for his office Christmas party! His co-workers loved it also! My daughter loved it so much that she requested I make it again for Christmas Eve! And I will probably make it again for New Years Eve too! Soon I'll be able to make this pie with my eyes closed!

This recipe is from a fellow food friend named Kim Mancuso from the Kim's Cooking Now food blog. I made her recipe as written except I added 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract to the cannoli filling. And I didn't use my food processor to make the crumb mixture. I just mixed it together with a fork and crumbled it with my hands! The crumb mixture was so silky, light and fluffy! I loved running my fingers through it! It was very therapeutic! Try it and you'll see what I mean. It must be because of these 2 unique Italian ingredients. I ordered them online and received them in 2 days! These ingredients only cost about $1.50 per pie.

Give this pie a try and you'll be in love with it too!
I'm writing the recipe with my slight changes.

Cannoli Crumb Pie
 Crumb Ingredients:
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 (16gr.) packet Paneangeli Lievito Pane Degli Angeli
1 packet Paneangeli Vanillina
1/8 tsp. kosher salt
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 large egg, slightly beaten
Cannoli Filling Ingredients:
15 oz. ricotta cheese - I used part skim
1/2 tsp. pure almond extract
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a deep dish baking pie pan.
In a large bowl, mix together all the crumb
ingredients with fork.
Mix thoroughly and crumble the mixture between your fingers.
Sprinkle half of this crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pie pan.
Do not press down on the mixture.
In a medium size bowl, mix together all the cannoli filling ingredients.
Pour the cannoli filling on top of the crumb
mixture in the pie pan.
Sprinkle the remaining crumb mixture on top,
covering the cannoli filling completely.
Bake uncovered on middle rack for 25 minutes. Then turn the oven to broil and bake another 3 minutes to brown the crumbs. Remove from oven and let cool completely.
Chill until ready to serve.
Serves 8
