Chocolate Chip Cookies with Ganache Stuffing


This is the second cookie I have made with a filling and I think this one was much better. The recipe can be found on Food and Wine. The chocolate chip cookie was also really good just on its own. The Ganache part made enough for another batch, so I will be making more of the cookies to go with it. The other cookie is Triple Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookie.

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Ganache Stuffing

Ingredients:

1 cup + 2 Tbsp. unbleached flour
1 tsp. Baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter

1 egg
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans

Ganache:
4 oz. semi-sweet chocolate
5 tbsp. heavy cream
2 1/2 tbsp. light corn syrup
2 tbsp. crème fraîche or sour cream

On a cookie sheet spread nuts and roast for about 8 minutes.
Let cool; then chop; set aside.
In small bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt; whisk.
In mixer bowl cream butter, sugars and vanilla; for about 1 minute.

Make ganache:

Take one cookie and spread ganache onto the bottom and then place another cookie on top.

Oh man, and I thought the standard chocolate chip cookie couldn't get any better... Adding more chocolate would certainly do the trick! ;)
