French Peppermint Cookies with Chocolate Ganache
Crisp on the outside, softer in the middle, and coated with creamy chocolate ganache. These French-influenced cookies have a meringue-and-confectioners'-sugar base with peppermint flavoring and peppermint candy. You may add any flavoring, including cinnamon, creme de menthe, raspberry, orange, etc. in lieu of peppermint. Garnish with peppermint or as desired.
If chocolate ganache thickens too much while cooling, add more cream or evaporated milk while reheating in double boiler.
