Directions:
Bring milk to scalding. Mix cornstarch and sugar in a separate bowl. Add a little bit of water, until pasty. While milk is scalding, mix the paste in slowly, and continue to stir until it boils. Continue stirring at boiling for about 5 minutes until mixture thickens. Remove from the heat. Slightly cool. Add vanilla and cinnamon to taste. Let cool and refrigerate. After cooled, and ready to fill cannoli shells, add 1/2 tub of ricotta cheese and chocolate shavings, (chocolate must be cold to shave or it will melt). Put mixture in pastry bag, or can use a ziplock bag and cut one of the bottom corners off, and fill the shells. Decorate with a half cherry at one end and chocolate chunk on the other.

This recipe is from Don's Aunt Sarina. She is a true Italian and these are the best cannolis ever. A real family favorite.
