Hello my 36th Avenue friends. It’s Gina from Kleinworth & Co & I’m so excited to be here today sharing one of my favorite little goodies, Cannoli Sugar Cookie Cups.

I absolutely love those weekends when we can have a little family time & take a stroll through downtown & visit all the shops & take in the beauty of the lake. If things work out I get to stop in to the pastry shop & pick up some treats. I always grab some cannolis & sometimes some eclairs too. I like to mix it up with a little bit of Italian & French when it comes to my desserts & I love that I can pick them all up in the same shop. I definitely walk out a happy girl.

So it had been a while since we had visited down there & I really wanted a cannoli. So I decided to change things up a little & use some of my sugar cookie cups I make in bulk just for occasions such as this & spin the classic cannoli into something different. Let me tell you- I’m so glad I did. These were so delicious. The only thing I would change is that I would have made more. They definitely ran out too quick.
