Italian Cream Stuffed Cannoncini


Firm and rich puff baked good cannoncini (horns) loaded up with smooth and rich custard cream I need to begin the new year with something exceptional. Something Italian. Something that I just looove. Something that is … what’s the privilege word?!?… Sweet obviously!! Also, I don’t mean any irregular treat yet a firm and rich puff baked good shell detonating with rich and corruptly smooth custard. Here is all I love (and need) in a cake: lick-your-finger tasty (genuinely!), simple to make (I utilized solidified puff cake to make things simpler), and very beautiful. It’s a given that I love custard cream. You presumably have gotten it by the numerous plans with cream on the blog. Leafy foods tart, torta della nonna, my strawberry rose tart, cream-filled frittelle, strawberry and cream bars, berry meringue cups … thus numerous others that I can’t recollect.

What’s not to adore about vanilla enhanced and thick cream, enclosed by a rich and fresh cake?!? Heavenly and encouraging, particularly on chilly cold weather days. Indeed, even here in Southern California we’ve had, for some odd reason, a touch of winter indicating this year! In the present formula, I utilized solidified puff cake. And everything I did was turning the cake out sprinkle with a little sugar (for extra crunchiness), cut in strips and move around the form. You can find in my video, how simple is to make these horns:

To Make this Recipe You’Il Need the following ingredients:




  • 1 sheet pastry dough 9X9-inches square
  • 12 Cannoncini molds
  • 1 cup caster sugar (210 g)
  • 1 egg


  • 4 egg yolks
  • 7 oz whole milk (200 ml)
  • 1.5 oz heavy cream (45 ml)
  • 5 tbsp caster sugar (70 gr)
  • 2.5 tbsp cornstarch (25 g)
  • 1/4 lemon peels
  • 2 drops vanilla extract




  1. First, pour the milk in a pot along with the heavy cream, the peels of 1 lemon and the vanilla extract.
  2. Place the pot over medium heat until the liquid reaches 165°-170° F, then turn off the flame and cover with a lid.
  3. Then, whisk the yolks along with the sugar until pale yellow and fluffy, then add the cornstarch a tbsp at a time and keep whisking until well consistent.
  4. At this point add the hot milk and cream infuse (discarding the lemon peels) and continue whisking.
  5. Finally, pour the mixture again into the pot and place over medium heat: keep wishing until thick (about 5 minutes).
  6. Once ready, pour the pastry cream in a bowl and cover with plastic wrap until reaches room temperature, then store into the fridge up to 48 hours.


  1. The critical problem using pastry dough sheets is keeping them cold: otherwise, the dough will start to lose consistency. So, you want to work quickly and possibly store the pastry 3 minutes (no more of) into the freezer when necessary.
  2. First, crack 1 egg in a bowl and wish until consistent.
  3. Then, pour the sugar into another bowl.
  4. Now, roll down the pastry dough sheet 9×9 inches per side on a wooden board.
  5. Then, reduce the sheet into 12 ribbons. After that, Brush the strips with the beaten egg, just a thin film.
  6. At this point, let’s prepare the first “Cannoncino”: press the edge of the dough ribbon against the tip of the horn mold lightly, then wrap the ribbon around the mold overlapping e little the strip.
  7. Now, roll the pastry horns into the sugar then place over a baking tray lined with parchment paper.
  8. Repeat the process for all the pastry ribbons, then bake into the oven pre-heated to 390° F (200° C) for about 20 minutes, until golden brown.


  1. Once baked, let the Cannoncini cool down 10 minutes, then remove the molds twisting and pulling very gently.
  2. Store the Cannoncini horns into a box up to 2 days, then fill them just before serving.
  3. Finally, pour the cream into a pastry bag then fill the Cannoncini, and serve immediately!
