Cartocci Siciliani

Cartocci Siciliani with Ricotta Cream and Custard Cream.

Cartocci Siciliani


For 1 Batch(es)

For the Cartocci:

  • 1 pound 00 flour, if unavailable use All Purpose Flour
  • 1 large eggs
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 2 ounces sugar
  • 1 lemon, zest only
  • 1 bag of dry yeast
  • lukewarm milk, as much as needed
  • vegetable oil for deep frying
  • Cream (Recipe HERE)
  • Cannoli Cream (Recipe HERE)


  1. In a stand mixer, mix the flour, butter, sugar and lemon zest. Let everything mix well.  You want the butter to be fully absorbed by the flour.
  2. Add the yeat and mix.
  3. Add the egg and mix.
  4. Add enough milk to give you a dough that can be rolled.  Not too soft, but not too hard either.
  5. Cover the dough and let it  rise for 1 1/2 hours in a warm part of the house.
  6. Take a ball of dough and roll it flat with a rolling pin. Cut the dough into strips of  about 1" wide, 1/4" thick and about 8" long.
  7. Wrap each strip in a spiral  around a Cannoli tube. Make all your Cartocci, cover them and leave them to rise for another hour.
  8. Deep fry all the Cartocci until they are golden brown.
  9. Let them cool off and fill them with Ricotta cream, custard or a Nutella Mousse
