  Egg 1
  Egg yolks 3
  Cooking oil 2 Tablespoon
  Lemon 1⁄2 , grated rind
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Instant coffee/Pulverized coffee 1 Tablespoon
  Sugar 1 3⁄4 Cup (28 tbs)
  Sauterne 1 Cup (16 tbs) (Just Enough To Hold)

  Ricotta 2 Pound

  Semisweet chocolate pieces 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
Directions

Put flour in bowl; add egg, 1 egg yolk, oil, lemon rind, cinnamon, coffee, and 1/4 cup sugar.
Mixing with hands, add just enough sauterne to hold ingredients together to form a dough.
Put on floured board and knead until smooth and elastic.
Chill for several hours.
Cut off pieces of dough about the size of a walnut, and roll very thin on a well-floured board.
Cut rounds using a 5-inch cutter or saucer.
Wrap each around a cannoli mold or piece of wood the thickness of a broomstick and about 5 inches long.
Secure with 2 beaten egg yolks.
Drop (mold and all) into hot deep fat (375° F.
on a frying thermometer) and fry until well browned.
Remove and drain on absorbent paper.
Cool slightly, then push molds out one end.
Just before serving, mix 1 1/2 cups sugar, ricotta, and remaining ingredients.
Fill cannoli and serve.
