Sadly---Michael Mercogliano, the founder of Mike’s Pastry, the landmark North End store, has died. Take a look behind the scenes of the famous bakery: http://www.boston.com/yourtown/boston/look-mike-pastry-the-north-end/akPJElG2yvzQEAbGen9HPI/gallery.html

    Sad news indeed.  One of my favorite stops when I lived in Boston.  Their Florentine cannoli still haunts my dreams!

        When I lived in Boston my favorite restaurant was The Daily Catch on Hanover St.  From there it was always over to Mike's for a cannoli.  For me, forget about this cupcake craze.  I'll take one of Mike's cannolis any day.

          The Florentine cannoli!!  I was never a big cannoli fan as I found the shells to be very dry and really just a vehicle for the filling...until I tried this one.  Baking an oversized Florentine cookie and rolling it into a cannoli shell is truly inspired and adds a crunchy texture from the nuts and a nice chew from the honey that makes the cookie such a joy to eat.

          Thanks so much, Mr. Mercogliano.  I'll be back soon for more!

                What is the filling, whipped cream or some type of custard?

                  Hepcat, I believe they use sweetened ricotta cheese.  Happy Holidays!
