Ganache, in french, refers to a smooth mixture of chocolate and thick cream. The walnut ganache cookie is a lip-smacking preparation of butter cookies layered with rich ganache. One interesting twist to this preparation is the addition of walnut to the chocolate ganache, providing an aesthetic blend of sweet and nutty flavours.
