A belligerent name for a harmless, sweet pastry shell. Cannoncini literally means little cannons, a reference to the pastry’s slim, tubular shape. Cannoncini are made by rolling a single strip of puff pastry dough around a thin metal cylinder, then baked. Most connoncini are filled with something sweet, such as pastry cream, whipped cream, sugary almond or pistachio paste, or fruit jam.
