There are countless easy desserts to choose from which are perfect for cooking with children, but since your kids are preparing a three-course meal, it’s nice to make something a bit special. Cannoli is a Sicilian pastry consisting of a light, fried tube of dough filled with a sweet, ricotta cheese-based filling. To simplify it for cooking with children, get your kids to combine 15 oz ricotta cheese, 2/3 cup confectioners’ sugar, 1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, and blend until smooth. Then, add two tablespoons of chocolate chips. Refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes, then pipe the mixture into ice cream cones and serve. From Brothers Pizza in Little Egg Harbor
