A fantastic new cookie idea

So this month’s Food & Wine mag came in the mail last week and as is my norm I read it cover to cover and ripped out pages that looked interesting as well as recipes that looked hopeful.  When it came time to decide on dishes to bring to a party this past weekend I was inspired by their idea of Ganache-stuffed chocolate chip cookies for my unhealthy dessert.

I already have what I believe to be the best recipe for chocolate chunk cookies eva, so I ripped their idea and used my own recipes for the cookies and the Ganache.  I decided to add some freshly ground espresso to the cookies this time around, and I also had a great tip from Sarah to add chopped fresh cherries to the ganache.  The feedback that I got from folks at the party was indicative of a winner.  Behold, the cherry ganache stuffed chocolate chunk espresso cookies:
