Chocolate Ganache Cookies


I love being home. One of my favorite parts of being home is my kitchen. I get to cook and eat anything I'd like, whenever I'd like to. There's an old addage that's something like, "Listen to your body, It'll tell you what to eat." Often I just crave colors. Like Red. Sometimes I need to eat red foods. I'm assuming my body is asking for Anthocyanidin or something. Today my body told me that I needed to eat chocolate cookies. I've been wanting to make these for weeks, today I skipped my afternoon swim and baked these instead.

– 2c flour (I used whole wheat)
– 1tsp baking powder
– 2/3c sugar
– 3/4c butter
– 1 egg
– 2 tsp  almond flavor

Chocolate Ganache
– 1 bag of chocolate chips
– anywhere from a few Tbs to about 1/4 pint of Heavy Whipping Cream

Roll into walnut sized balls, flatten and bake at 350 for 15-20min until light golden brown. Let them cool.  To make the ganache, whisk the cream into the chocolate a Tbs at a time over low heat or a double boiler, you want the texture to be thick and spreadable. Spoon on Tbs of ganache on top of each cookie. Let sit until solidified.
