Even though I am an ice cream enthusiast, I decided to take a traditional chipwich and change the filling to cannoli cream. I recently visited a gourmet Italian market and cannoli cream really caught my eye. So, I baked some chocolate chip cookies using this recipe and decided to play around with the filling. After some trial and error, I made a quick, easy, and delicious cannoli cream filling that pairs perfectly with crispy chocolate chip cookies. I think it's safe to say that cannoli cream chipwiches are like ice cream sandwiches, but better.
