Preheat oven to 170C (fan forced). Line a baking tray with baking paper.
In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine peanut butter, butter and sugar until soft and creamy. Add egg and Vanilla Bean Paste and mix to combine.
In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. With the mixer on low, slowly add dry ingredients until combined.
Roll dough into 2cm balls and place prepared baking tray. Gently press slightly with finger tips. Bake for 8-10 minutes or as soon as tops begin to slightly crack. Allow to cool on tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
Method - Ganache
Place chocolate in a heat proof bowl. Set aside. Gently heat cream in a small saucepan to a simmer. Pour over chocolate and allow to sit for 4 minutes before stirring until smooth. Place in refrigerator for 20-30 minutes until spreadable.
