Mint-Ganache Sandwich Cookies

Directions

  1. Wrap and chill dough 30 to 60 minutes or until easy to handle. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. On a lightly floured surface roll dough to a 9-inch square. Use a pastry wheel or pizza cutter to cut dough into 1 1/2-inch squares. Arrange dough squares 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Prick each several times with a fork. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute. Remove; cool on wire racks.
  2. For ganache, in a small bowl microwave cream 20 to 30 seconds or just until boiling. Add chocolate (do not stir). Let stand 5 minutes. Stir until smooth. Chill 10 minutes or until spreadable.
  3. For mint frosting, in a small bowl stir together powdered sugar, butter, milk, and mint extract until spreading consistency. Add food coloring.
  4. Spread frosting on the bottoms of half of the cookies. Spread ganache on bottoms of remaining cookies; chill 10 minutes to set. Top ganache-topped cookies with frosting-topped cookies. Lightly dust cookies with additional powdered sugar.
