Chocolate Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

Chocolate does double duty in these crunchy shortbread cookies sandwiched with a creamy and decadent dark chocolate ganache.

Notes: For best flavor, use a good quality bittersweet chocolate. Any size or shape cookie cutter will work here. I used a 2 1/2-inch cutter. The wide end of a pastry tip is useful to stamp the centers from the top cookies. For extra chocolate appeal, dunk the cookie in melted chocolate.
