    If you quarter the recipe of ganache, you'll have 1 3/4 cups, exactly what the macaron recipe calls for. Use any extra as a dipping sauce for fruit.

    The cookie recipe in the SoNo Baking Company Cookbook (p. 76-77) specifies that you will need "1/4 recipe Ganache (page 169)" for filling these cookies.

    Yes, the ganache recipe can be cup by 3/4's. I dont get why they made such a large batch. Even 1/4 of the recipe is more than needed. But it does taste great.

    I think the ganache recipe needs to be scaled down. To make 36 cookies with 1 teaspoon of ganache each requires about 3/4 cup of ganache, a cup at most. However, the ganache recipe, as given, makes 7 cups. We all love chocolate, but that's a lot!
