Ganache Cookie Sandwich

Ganache Cookie Sandwich

These are bitter cocoa cookies with ganache filling.

Ingredients: 36 cookies (3.5cm each)

Butter
120 g (at room temperature)
Sugar
50 g
Egg yolk
1
A. Cake flour
140 g
A. Almond powder
40 g
A. Cocoa powder
20 g
B. Chocolate
60 g
B. Heavy cream
2 tablespoons

Steps

1. Mix the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg yolks and mix more.
2. Sift the "A" ingredients into the bowl and gently fold.
3. The dough is ready when it comes together and there is no visible flour.
4. Shape the dough into a long stick and wrap it with plastic wrap. Rest in the refrigerator or freezer for one hour to chill well.
5. I made round cookies this time, but you can make square shaped cookies or use any cookie cutter you like by rolling out the rested dough.
6. Cut the cookies into 5 mm slices and bake in an oven preheated to 170°C for 12 minutes. Cool when done.
7. Warm the "B" ingredients to melt the chocolate. Mix and make ganache. (I used a microwave.) Cool slightly.
8. Fill the cookies with the ganache. The ganache needs to cool down a bit to gain thickness, otherwise it will be hard to fill the cookies.
9. Finished. I recommend you rest the cookies in the refrigerator until the ganache settles.
10. The flavor will be fit for adults if you add liquor into the ganache.
