Skinny Strawberry Jell-O Cream Pie Cannolis

Last Fall I created these delicious and cute Skinny Pumpkin Pie Cannolis. Well, I just loved them so much, so I am bringing them back for a Summer revival, with a new spin!

This time I whipped up these super simple {only 3 ingredients} and even cuter Skinny Strawberry Jell-O Cream Pie Cannolis!

Skinny Strawberry Jell-O Cream Pie Cannolis

These are not actual “cannolis”, I simply used a circle cookie cutter to cut out some pie dough then wrapped the circles around some cannoli forms. Then I used a cute little star cookie cutter to make the Skinny Cannolis a little more “Patriotic” if you will…

{I bought my cannoli forms here on Amazon, really inexpensive, and they have come in handy a few times!}

The three ingredients you will need are: refrigerated pie dough, 1 small box of Strawberry Jell-O mix (You can use Sugar-free, I just couldn’t find any at my store), and some Light Cool Whip!

You’ll also need boiling water, cold water, and ice- but those don’t really count as ingredients in my book…

Strawberry Jell-O

You’ll mix up the Strawberry Jell-O mixture first, then put it in the fridge to cool and set up.

Then you’ll wrap your pie dough around the metal cannoli forms, top with some cute stars (optional), and brush with a little milk.

Bake them until golden brown, let them cool, and then fill with the Strawberry Jell-O Cream Pie filling!

How simple is that!?

Not only are these super easy to make, but they are beyond cute and completely irresistible!

The flakey crust around the creamy strawberry filling is a match made in heaven. Plus they are “skinny” desserts, so you can have two and not feel bad about it!

I love it when that happens.

You can make these even more “Patriotic” for your 4th of July party by mixing up some blue Jell-O filling along with the strawberry Jell-O filling. How fun would that be!?

Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

Skinny Strawberry Jell-O Cream Pie Cannolis

Yield: makes 14 cannolis

Ingredients

  • 2 refrigerated pie crust doughs (for a 9" pie)
  • 1 small box (4 servings size) Strawberry Jell-O (you can use sugar free)
  • 8 oz Light Cool Whip (you can use Fat Free)
  • 2/3 cup boiling water
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • ice cubes
  • 1 tbsp milk- for brushing pie crust

Instructions

  1. In a medium bowl whisk together the Jell-O powder with the boiling water, stir for 2 minutes so the powder is all dissolved.
  2. In a 1-cup measuring cup fill to 1/2 cup with cold water, add enough ice to cold water to make 1 cup. Pour into the gelatin mixture, stir until slightly thickened; remove any unmelted ice cubes.
  3. Whisk in the Cool Whip. Pour into a zip-close bag and store in refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
  4. Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees F.
  5. Cut out pie crust into 3" circles. Cut out stars (if desired). Wrap the circles around the cannoli forms, brush lightly with the milk, add the stars on top, and brush with milk. Repeat with remaining pie crusts. Note- use a rolling pin to re-roll out the scraps of dough to cut out 3 more circles per pie crust.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before carefully removing the cannoli form. Use caution as the forms will be very hot.
  7. Snip a corner of the zip-close bag and pipe the strawberry Jell-O cream pie mixture into the cannolis. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
  8. Enjoy!

  1. Shawn! I am obsessed with the ease of these cannolis! And okay, I will probably offend some cannoli-purist out there but honestly, I think I’d prefer this shell over the original anyday. I have a serious pie crust addiction :) love that we posted cannolis on the same day! Great minds ;)

    • Oh my gosh, how funny!! Yours are totally cute. But yeah, I am going to have to agree with you- I love the pie shell over the regular fried cannoli shell any day. ;)

  2. These look so cute and sound delicious!

  3. After making those skinny pumpkin cannolis i very much have to make these! I already have orange jello, so i may do that instead of strawberry.

  4. OMG, Shawn! how cute are these?!! Sidenote: I’m obsessed with stars and even have a small pink star tattoo on my lower back. These look so yummy and ALMOST too pretty to eat! ;) You’re on a roll lady…you rock!

    Snap! What a cute idea and how easy.

  6. Where do you get the cannoli forms?

  7. These look great, and the pumpkin connolis sound even better

  8. paula bell says:

    has anyone tried mixing fresh strawberry in there also

    • Hi Paula! Great question! You could definitely cut up some strawberries really small and fold them in there along with the Cool Whip. :)

  9. I love that you made them with pie crust!! I keep wanting to try homemade cannolis. Someday :)

  10. Love!

  11. Hi, I was wondering if there is something else you can use to form the cannolis to bake if you don’t have the metal middle forms?

  12. Saved and Pinned! LOVE cannolis. Makes it so easy with the pie crust.
