The most beautiful and delicious canoli I have ever seen or tasted worked it's way into my life via a friend of Donal's. Lauren brought two canoli and a pint of hazelnut gelato to Donal's house last weekend when I happened to be visiting.
Isn't this just a gorgeous looking pasty? Look at the crispy air bubbles. The clearly divine texture of the canoli cream and the perfect amount of mini chocolate chips dispersed throughout.
The gelato was delicately scooped for the sake of the picture by Donal.
By the time picture taking was over we just slammed three spoons in the ice cream bowl and broke the canoli in pieces and we were done in no time. Both dessert elements came from Vacarro's in Baltimore and are available at a number of other area locations.
The gelato was really the high point, not as sweet as ice cream, but with a super smooth texture combined with bits of real toasted hazelnuts, it was the epitome of delicious frozen treats.
