from Bon Appetit Magazine, December 1990. Festive cookies spread with minted white chocolate and coated with dark chocolate. These have always been well received. The original recipe calls for piping the cookies out into ovals with the centers filled, but I found them very difficult to pipe, so I always hand-form them as described below. Also, I've always found that I can halve the ganache and have plenty for my taste. The chocolate coating amounts are just right.
