French Cannoli w/Almonds

Been a long time since I posted about Rocco’s Pastry Shop on Bleeker Street in New York City. Regular readers of The Bent Page might remember this place has been a favorite of mine since 1986. Wow, closing in on 30 years of pastry and coffee. At any rate, stopped in recently and enjoyed a wonderful French cannoli with almonds as seen below:

That, my friends, is a delicious pastry. Of course, Rocco’s makes many more delectable desserts and coffees. It’s hard to resist and worth busting the diet. Enjoy every meal!

French Cannoli (from Rocco’s, NYC)

Way back in 1986, I came across Rocco’s Pastry Shop on Bleeker Street in New York City. We’ve had a close relationship ever since because I love pastry and Rocco’s makes some of the best. My favorite quick and ready item is the French Cannoli with almonds you see here:

The pastry is incredibly light, the custard filling cool and balanced, the toasted, shaved almonds the perfect crunch counterpoint. Yes, it’s that good and you should go get one right away to see for yourself. Of course, there are many other baked items to enjoy at Rocco’s, where they also serve various Italian coffees. Enjoy every meal.
