Aki's Uncle Bob suggested that we make a cannoli doughnut. We decided to use the thumbprint model to bring it to life. We roll the new fashioned doughnuts doughnuts in toasted pistachio sugar. We pipe a hefty dollop of cannoli cream into the thumbprint. To make it we blend cream cheese, ricotta, and non-fat milk powder with vanilla paste, sugar, and salt to make a creamy and decadent filling. We top the doughnuts with roasted, salted, chopped pistachios. Brilliant and delicious.
