Ganache is a traditional sauce made of chocolate, cream and in this case walnuts, which is used to add a chocoholic dimension to cookies, pasties, peanut butter fudge and other tempting baked delicacies.
Ganache is mostly used as a filling, as in the case of these Walnut Ganache Cookies too. Here, cookie dough is sandwiched with ganache, cut into strips and then baked to perfection. The result is an irresistible, melt-in-the-mouth cookie with the unmistakable tinge of dark chocolate.
