Nutella Cookie Sandwiches with Cannoli Filling

Main Ingredients
candy canes nutella orange ricotta

I made these Nutella cookies, intending to use them for mini cheesecake crusts. I took a detour, though, and decided to make little cookie sandwiches instead.

These were cute little treats. I didn’t know how the cannoli and candy cane flavors would mesh, but it worked! The cannoli filling was a little thin though… the only improvement might be to thicken it up a little with less liquid, more sugar or some flour.
