Cannoli Wafer Sandwiches
My family loves to visit a local Italian restaurant that has a wonderful dessert buffet. The cannoli are among our favorites, so I just had to come up with my own simple version. These are best served the same day so the wafers are still nice and crisp. —Nichi Larson, Shawnee, Kansas

This is my husbands absolute favourite. They are delicious and do taste like cannoli. My only recommendation is not to try to freeze them. The cookies become mushy when thawed.
