Valentine's Day falls on a Monday this year, so why not take some time on Sunday to make a special lunch for your sweetheart? Pack a delicious salad or sandwich and a bag full of these addictive chocolate ganache thumbprint cookies. They're simple to make but require time for the dough to chill. The ganache is seasoned with vanilla bean resulting in a very smooth, rich, and delightful filling. I highly recommend you make a batch of these scrumptious cookies. Check out the recipe now.
