From mom. We almost never make actual cannolis with it, though (too much trouble to make or buy the shells.) It's good served dip-style with broken up waffle ice cream cones. My dad likes it on waffles for breakfast. My mom uses it as a filling for her 'Chocolate Cherry Cannoli Cake.' Cooking time is for soaking the nuts.
