Someone doing a search for “purchase gluten free cannoli shells” landed on my blog today. This prompted me to research whether or not you can purchase them or not. The only thing I found was a waffle type pizzelle made into the shape of a cannoli shell. Pizzelles are actually a cookie. Well, I got to work in my kitchen right away and came up with a successful gluten free cannoli shells recipe. Try it! I really think you’ll be pleased.
I started with my original non gluten free cannoli shells recipe. I left out the cocoa powder, as I wanted to make a traditional, yet gluten free cannoli shells recipe. Though traditional recipes do not call for cinnamon, I just love a cinnamon cannoli, therefore, left it in this recipe. I also cut the recipe in half, as I did not want to test such a large batch. This half batch makes about 18 cannoli.
