Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total time: 25 minutes
Yield: 18 sandwich cookies

Ingredients

For the ganache
3/4 cup heavy cream
4 ounces chopped bittersweet chocolate
1/4 cup Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter
Pinch of salt

For the cookies
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup Smooth Operator peanut butter
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled

Directions

1. Make the ganache: Bring heavy cream, Dark Chocolate Dreams peanut butter, and salt to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium. Place chocolate in a heat-proof bowl and pour cream mixture over it. Set aside to cool slightly, about 3 minutes; stir to melt chocolate. Transfer ganache, uncovered, to refrigerator to chill completely for about an hour.

2. Make the cookies: Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, stir together butter, sugar and Smooth Operator peanut butter. Stir in flour to create a dough. Portion dough into 1/2-tablespoon amounts and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart. Use a glass dipped in sugar to press cookies to about 1/4-inch thick (and about 2 inches in diameter). Bake cookies 12 minutes or until golden around edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

3. Make the sandwiches: Spoon about 1 teaspoon cooled ganache onto underside of one cool cookie; sandwich with another cookie. Repeat with remaining ganache and cookies. Store in an airtight container in refrigerator up to 3 days.
