No-Bake Cannoli Pie

If you love this classic Italian dessert, you’ll be happy to know that this easy no-bake pie from Everyday Pie encapsulates all the flavors in just a fraction of the time.


For the crumb crust:

  • 6 oz vanilla wafer cookies
  • ½ cup shelled and unsalted pistachios
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 6 Tbsp unsalted butter

For the filling:

  • ¾ cup heavy cream, cold
  • 8 oz mascarpone or cream cheese
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese
  • 1 Tbsp orange zest


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF.
  2. Place vanilla wafers, pistachios, and sugar in a food processor and process until finely ground, with just a few larger pieces of pistachios remaining.
  3. Melt butter in a medium pot. Add crumbs to pot and mix until completely combined.
  4. Pour crumbs into a pie plate and press the ingredients up the sides to form the edges first. Once edges are formed, work the crumbs down to evenly distribute into bottom of plate, packing it down into an even layer.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes, until lightly golden and fragrant. Or freeze for 30 minutes for a no-bake pie option.

For the filling:

  1. With an electric mixer using the whisk attachment, whip heavy cream until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Place mascarpone and sugar in the bowl for the electric mixer. Whip on medium until smooth, about 2 minutes, scraping down the bowl halfway through. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add ricotta and orange zest. Mix until just fully combined.
  3. Add ⅓ of whipped cream to ricotta mixture and fold it in with a rubber spatula by hand until completely combined.
  4. Add remaining whipped cream to the bowl and gently fold in, careful not to deflate.
  5. Pour filling in the crust and smooth over top.
  6. Place in refrigerator to set up. It needs at least 4 hours chilling time, but preferably overnight. Or place in the freezer.
