Make It
Step 1
Preheat oven to 350° F.
Step 2
In a small saucepan, bring evaporated milk to a scald. Remove from heat and add morsels. Stir to melt. Transfer mixture to a bowl and chill in refrigerator until thick and stiff, approximately 20 minutes.
Step 3
Break apart cookie dough into 24 squares. Gently flatten each square between your hands. Place 12 flattened squares onto an ungreased baking sheet. Remove ganache mixture from refrigerator. Place approximately 1 teaspoon of ganache into the center of each cookie on the sheet. Sprinkle crushed candy canes on top of the ganache. Top each cookie with 1 of the remaining flattened cookies. Pinch together sides of each cookie to seal and roll into balls. Place on baking sheet.
Step 4
Bake for 12-14 minutes or until slightly golden around the edges. Remove baking sheet from oven and place on cooling rack. Let cookies cool to room temperature before serving.
