Cannoli with Hazelnut Cream

1 cup shelled hazelnuts
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup shelled natural pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped
6 cannoli shells
confectioners sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. Scatter hazelnuts on a baking sheet and toast 15 to 18 minutes or until nuts are lightly browned and skins are cracked. Remove as much of brown skins as possible by rubbing nuts in a kitchen towel.

Crack nuts into coarse pieces by enclosing in a clean kitchen towel and hitting gently with a rolling pin. In a medium bowl, whip cream with an electric mixer 2 to 3 minutes or until thick.

Briefly beat in granulated sugar and vanilla. Fold in hazelnuts and pistachios.

Stuff Cannoli shells with nut cream. Serve topped with a light sifting of confectioners' sugar.
