Cannoli Bruschetta

Tonight we had some family and friends over. We wanted something sweet, and the girls were hungry for rum balls, but we didn't have the ingredients on hand to make those....so we settled on cannoli bruschetta. So the rum balls will have to wait for another day. The cannoli bruschetta was actually very good. It's not too sweet and the flavors all blend together well. We had Italian Minestrone Soup for dinner, so this was a good way to end the night with an Italian dessert. My Food Network Magazine had the recipes for dinner and dessert. I love that magazine. I think it's quickly become one of my favorite food magazines!

For the Bruschetta:
1 small french baquette loaf
butter
granulated sugar
cinnamon

Slice bread into even slices. Spread a small amount of butter on each slice. Sprinkle granulated sugar and a little bit of cinnamon onto each slice. Broil until slightly crispy.


For the toppings:
1/2 cup ricotta cheese
1/4 cup powdered sugar
dash of vanilla

Mix these together in blender until well mixed. Spoon a small amount onto the top of each broiled bruschetta slice.

*Top with either shaved chocolate or chocolate chips and pistachios
