Chocolate Ganache Cookies

I wanted chocolate cookies, and had about 11 ounces of left over espresso ganache, from the Opera Cake.

This is one of those recipes – where you need an absurd ingredient to start with.  Sorry.

Pre-heat the oven to 350°F

Prep 3 sheet pans, with parchment.

1.0 Chocolate Ganache Cookies  

Ingredients:
  • 1 12 Cups       ________________ All-Purpose Flour ~188 grams
  • 14 Cup   ________________ cocoa powder (unsweetened, not dutch)
  • 1 tsp   ________________ Baking Powder (aka BP)
  • 12 tsp   ________________ Baking Soda (aka BS)
  • 12 tsp  ________________ salt
  • 2     ________________ eggs
  • 12 Cup   ________________ sugar (white sugar)
  • 14 Cup   ________________ dark brown sugar
  • 1 TBSP   ________________ vanilla
  • 4 TBSP   ________________ butter (room temp.)
  • 10 oz   ________________ ganache (see opera cake recipe) at room temp
  • 1 Cup  _________________ chocolate chips (whatever kind you like)
Instructions:
  • Whisk together Flour & BP & BS & Cocoa powder & salt – sift
  • With the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars
  • Mix in the eggs and vanilla
  • Mix in the ganache.
  • Mix till well combined.
  • Add in the dry ingredients and mix until just combined
  • Add in the chocolate chips.
  • Spoon onto cookie sheets, about a TBSP per cookie.
  • Bake for 12 minutes.  Let cool on the pan for a few minutes before moving to a rack to cool

These stay very moist, and have a nice crumb.
