Abstract: Usually filled with a whey cheese-based sweet cream a few minutes before serving in order to prevent the moisture of the cream from softening the waffle and thus preserve its crispness, Sicilian cannoli are an ancient pastry of Sicily widely appreciated across the world. Another method to protect the “scorza” from quick softening is to coat the inner surface of the waffle with melt chocolate, altering the original taste of the pastry. We now report a simple method to stabilize Sicilian cannoli against moisture migration based on coating the inner layer of the waffle with a thin layer of pure glycerol.

Key words: Sicilian cannoli, ricotta pastry, whey cheese, glycerol, bioeconomy
