Do cannoli shell recipes in Italy call for olive oil?

krissyafite | Apr 9, 201512:46 PM

Does it vary depending on the recipe?I noticed some recipes for shells call for hydrogenated shortening, some call for butter and others call for olive oil for fat? I think the shells in the canolli kit I bought a couple of times was palm oil. I recently made fresh shells and used olive oil and it was delicous. Id rather use olive oil or palm oil then hydrogenated vegetable shortening, but butter sounds good.
