How To Make Sugar Free Cannoli Cookie Cups

Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees. Grease a standard 12-well muffin pan with coconut oil or avocado oil spray.

Combine the almond flour, Confectioner’s Swerve, salt, and cinnamon in a large mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to mix in the softened butter until a crumbly dough forms. Add in one egg and the vanilla until just mixed.

Scoop an even amount of dough into each prepared wells of the muffin tin. Using your fingers, mold the dough up the sides, coming about 3/4ths of the way up to form the cookie cups. Spray your fingers with cooking spray if the dough gets difficult to work with.

Bake for 13-16 minutes, until the edges are browned. Remove from the oven and let the cookie cups cool in the pan while you prepare the filling. When the cookie cups are completely cool, carefully remove them from the muffin tin and place them on a cooling rack.

Preparing The Cannoli Cream Filling

Start to prepare the cannoli cream filling by straining the ricotta so there is no excess liquid. You can place it on some folded paper towels or a clean kitchen towel and pat it dry to absorb as much moisture as possible. Set aside.

Pour the whipping cream into a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, whip the cream into stiff peaks. Add in the Confectioner’s Swerve, cinnamon, ricotta, and vanilla. Use the electric mixer to mix until everything is smooth.

Fill a pastry bag or a zip top bag with the ricotta cream filling. If you are using a zip top bag, cut a small opening in the corner of one of the bottom corners to push the filling out of. Fill each one of the cookie cups up about 3/4ths of the way full with the filling. Top each one with 1 teaspoon of chocolate chips.

You can serve the cannoli cookie cups immediately, or store leftovers in the refrigerator for up to a week (if they last that long!)

    Do the cups get soggy after being filled? Is it better to fill right before serving?
