This Valentine’s Day stay in and make your loved one a home cooked with love dinner. And for dessert, try this sweet mash-up for something a bit different. Playful, simple and delicious, combine chocolate chip cookies with cannoli cream to make a delectable little sandwich. And there’s nothing better on the side than a hot mug of hot chocolate sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon – because you know what they say about cinnamon… 😉
inspired by Lidia Bastianich
1 1/2 cups whole milk ricotta cheese
1/2-3/4 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tbs Grand Marnier
Overnight, drain the ricotta cheese in a cheesecloth lined strainer over a bowl to remove excess water. Mix the sugar and Grand Marnier in and let chill.
Bake your favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and let cool. Place some of the cannoli cream in between two cookies to form a sandwich.
