It all started 25 years ago in Grandma’s cozy kitchen. Every year over Thanksgiving break we the grandkids would get all bundled up and head straight to Grandma and Grandpa’s for what would become a long standing tradition making cannoli for Christmas. This was a 5th generation recipe in our family and each of us had a job to do, mixing the dough, rolling it out and wrapping the shells around the dowls. Poor Mom was stuck with the deep frying job since we were too young and too short to help her.
The family owned antique shop became the host location for “The Main Event” known as the Christmas Open House . Our Grandparents have made many wonderful friends and loyal customers over the years through the family business. But for one special weekend each year our grandparents special friends travel from all over the country to visit our family and to enjoy our family's handmade favorites they so affectionately call “The World’s Best Cannoli”. Well, after hearing that compliment over the years from the people we trust we decided it was time to share our love of family, friends and great cannoli with the world.
In 2010, our family with the support of so many loyal friends and customers began a new venture into the world of cannoli making for the public. Holy Cannoli’s seemed to be the perfect name for our heavenly delicious dessert. Grandma, Mom and the two Sisters are in charge while the husbands have all the fun as the official taste testers of each and every batch. Certainly Grandpa’s favorite job. Grandpa may not be with us anymore but his enthusiasm, love, support and constant urging to start this business will never be lost and we are forever grateful.
