With lime fill­ing and an ice cream cone shell, it’s the laid-back sum­mer ver­sion of a beloved Ital­ian treat.

Taste of Home - - Mixing Bowl -

Ri­cotta is one of my fam­ily’s fa­vorite in­gre­di­ents. If you don’t want the can­noli fill­ing served in cones, try break­ing cones into pieces to use as a sweet take on chips and dip.

Test Kitchen tip: Do not use a food pro­ces­sor to chop the citron—it could make it too fine, and its fla­vor is more in­tense with slightly larger bits.
