YUM. They turned out much better than I thought they would. They are absolutely delicious. I did change one thing in the recipe. It originally called for a white chocolate ganache filling. I switched it to dark chocolate. My technique for making the indentations in the cookies got better as I went along, so next time should be much easier.
The cookie and the ganache both have chocolate and mint. The mint in the cookie part is subtle, while the mint in the ganache is strong. This was the first time I've used peppermint extract. I found an interesting warning on the bottle.

The cookies were good last night, but they were even better after chilling overnight in the fridge. Yes, I did have cookies for breakfast this morning. There is nothing wrong with that.
