Pinch of salt


For the cookies

4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1 cup Peanut Butter & Co. Smooth Operator

1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled

  2. Place chocolate in a heat-proof bowl and pour cream mixture over it. 

  3. Set aside to cool slightly, about 3 minutes; stir to melt chocolate. 

  4. Transfer ganache, uncovered, to the refrigerator to chill completely for about an hour.

  5. Make the cookies: Preheat oven to 350°F.

  6. In a medium bowl, stir together butter, sugar, and Peanut Butter & Co. Smooth Operator.

  7. Stir in flour to create a dough.

  8. Portion dough into 1/2-tablespoon amounts and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

  9. Use a glass dipped in sugar to press cookies to about 1/4-inch thick (and about 2 inches in diameter).

  10. Bake cookies for 12 minutes or until golden around the edges. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  11. Make the sandwiches: Spoon about 1 teaspoon cooled ganache onto the underside of one cool cookie; sandwich with another cookie. Repeat with remaining ganache and cookies.
