These turned out divine. Luke thought I was the best cook in the world... Unfortunately it's not me with wonderful cooking skills, it's just that the recipe is super duper simple.
230g unsalted butter, diced and softened
100g icing sugar
15g dark cocoa
15g instant coffee mixed with 1 1/2T of boiling water
1t vanilla extract
175g plain flour
100g corn flour
For chocolate ganache:
1tsp vanilla paste
60g unsalted butter
160 chocolate buds
For biscuits: preheat oven to 170c. Beat butter and icing sugar. Add cocoa, coffee and vanilla together and combine. Add flours and mix until all is combined. If mixture is soft, place is refrigerator for a few mins.
Place the same sized discs onto baking tray. Bake for 12 minutes. Allow to cool.
For chocolate ganache: place cream in saucepan, heat until boiled. Turn heat down low, add butter, vanilla paste and chocolate until smooth. Allow to cool until it becomes a thick consistency.
Spread ganache between biscuits. Delicious!!
