Please notice that your cookies will not spread much.

You may ask, what is marsala wine? marsala wine is a fortified wine made in Sicily in Italy. It is dry or sweet and contains about 15%-20% alcohol by volume. It is similar to Spanish Sherry. A good substitute for marsala wine is a grape juice.

What do eggless ricotta cannoli cookies taste like?

These cookies are egg-less, soft, tangy, sweet, nutty – so indulgent. Dark chocolate chips, toasted pistachios and homemade orange peel. I encourage you to make your own orange peel as the store bought version can be nasty and ruin your cookies. This is what I learnt in the past and since then I keep a jar of homemade orange peel in my freezer just in case.

The texture of egg-less ricotta cannoli cookies is soft and a little dense due to ricotta cheese and a little cakey with lots of add ins! I will always say this, add as many extras – chocolate chips, pistachios and orange peel – as you wish. My measurements suit my taste and if you are not a big fun of orange peel, just add a little bit. I would not omit orange peel from this recipe as for me cannoli without an orange peel is not a cannoli!
