Makes 6-8 cookies
For the Chocolate Sablé Dough
12 ounce butter
8.5 ounces sugar
13.4 ounces all purpose flour
Pinch baking soda
4.5 ounces (Hershey's Special dark) cocoa powder
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together using a paddle on medium speed. Sift the dry ingredients together and add to the butter and sugar mixture until combined. Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes. Roll the dough out to a thickness of 1/8 of an inch. Cut out cookies into desired shapes. Refrigerate the cut cookies for 20 minutes. Bake at 325°F for 12 minutes and let cool on a rack.
For the White Chocolate Ganache Filling
7 ounces heavy cream
7 ounces white chocolate
1 ounces butter
Chop the white chocolate and place in a bowl. Bring the heavy cream to a boil and pour over the chopped white chocolate and stir until smooth. Add the butter and stir until incorporated. Allow the cream mixture to cool. Transfer the mixture to the bowl of electric mixer. Using the whisk attachment, whip until light and the mixture holds its shape. Refrigerate until needed.
Pipe the filling onto one cookie and top with another.
(I add 1T. Brandy to my Ganache)
