On a lightly floured surface roll dough and Cut into small squares.
Transfer squares to a waxed paper.Bake at 200 degrees C for 10-15 min.
-Ganache: Place the chocolate into a medium bowl. Heat the cream in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil.When the cream has come to a boil, pour over the chopped chocolate, and whisk until smooth.Allow the ganache to cool until thick,then whip with a whisk until light and fluffy.
Melt chocolate over a double boiler and dip half of each cookie into the chocolate.
Allow to cool.
Put the bottoms of two cookies together with the creamy ganache Filling.
