If you enjoy cannoli as much as we do give ours a try. You won’t be disappointed! You can place your order by text or phone call to 910-444-1916. Leave a message if we can’t pick up, we’re busy baking!
Twiins in the Kitchen are excited to announce we are now accepting orders for our Cannoli and Cannoli Cupcakes, in the Leland, NC area.
We both missed our local Italian bakery on Long Island. We thought they made the best cannoli and pastries in our area. After repeatedly hearing from friends & family how delicious our cannoli are we decided it was time to offer them to our local community.
Our cannoli cream is naturally gluten-free and comes in 2 sizes, mini and large. We offer our mini cannoli with regular or gluten-free shells. Cupcakes are also available in regular and gluten-free. Large shells are regular only at this time. Just choose your favorite garnish and enjoy. Order early for the holiday season.
Did you know that a single cannoli is actually “cannolo” in Italian while the grammatically plural is cannoli? Here in the US, we usually use cannoli for the singular and cannolis for the plural. However, any way you want to say it they are a delicious dessert for any occasion!
All across America, January 23rd is National Pie Day and Brunswick Forest hosted their very first Pie Baking Contest to celebrate this national event!
Teresa & I are not known for making pies but I thought we should enter this local contest to challenge ourselves. Teresa even wanted to back out the day before the contest…she just wasn’t feeling it. I wanted to replicate a berry cream pie that Briermere Farms in Riverhead, Long Island is famous for. I had so many wonderful memories of their cream pies that I had to give it a try. Teresa, on the other hand, had no clue what she wanted to bake. She loved our father’s banana pudding dessert as a young girl so after I convinced her not to withdraw from the contest she decided she would make a banana cream pie reminiscent of that flavor only kicking it up a notch.
There were a total of 14 entries that were judged by professionals in the food industry. I am thrilled to announce Teresa’s Banana Cream Bourbon-Caramel Pie took first place…I took second place with my Berry Cream Pie(I should have let her back out!) LOL
We tested so many pie crust recipes and got the best consistency using a sour cream pie crust recipe from Elise Bauer of Simply Recipes. It worked great for blind baking both of our crusts. This recipe gives you the most buttery, flakiest texture that we ever tasted in a homemade crust. It certainly is a winner!
