Chocolate Heart Sandwich Cookies

Chocolate Heart Sandwich Cookies
This is another Miss F recipe, she made these cookies from start to finish, it is definitely kid friendly. I am still working on being confident enough to let her deal with the oven in any way, I know she can do it, but I am so scared of her getting burned, so I handle that part myself. These cookies are perfect for a Valentine treat.  The cookie recipe is from All Recipes and I added an easy ganache to make them a decadent sandwich cookie.  I used several different sizes of heart cookie cutters, be sure to make an even number of each side so you are able to make sandwiches of them all.  Miss F and I may have snuck a cookie or two right out of the oven.
Chocolate Heart Sandwich Cookies

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ¼ teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
¾ cup butter, softened
1 ¼ cups white sugar
1 egg

1 cup chocolate chips
¼ cup heavy cream

In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt; set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg. Stir in the flour mixture to form a soft dough. Divide into two pieces, flatten and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for two hours.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thickness, use heart cookie cutters or desired shape to cut out the cookies, re-rolling any scraps. Line cookie sheets with Silpat or parchment paper. Place cut out hearts on the cookie sheets one inch apart. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then cool on a wire rack completely.

Stir together the chocolate chips and cream in a microwave safe bowl. Microwave in 30 second intervals, stirring in between until the chocolate chips have melted completely. Spread the chocolate mixture on the bottom of one cookie, then sandwich another cookie on top. Repeat with all the cooled cookies.
