  1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Combine flour and salt in medium bowl. Cut in softened butter until dough forms pea-size pieces. Add 1 cup crème fraîche; stir to combine. Gently knead, adding up to 1 tablespoon water, if needed, to bring dough together.
  3. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut with leaf-shaped cookie cutters. Place onto prepared cookie sheet; Bake 7-9 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
  4. Combine sugar and cinnamon in small bowl. Gently toss warm cookies into sugar mixture to coat well. Let cool completely on sheet of waxed or parchment paper.
  5. Place chopped chocolate into small bowl; set aside.
  6. Heat remaining 1/2 cup crème fraîche in small saucepan over medium-high heat until almost simmering. Pour crème fraîche over chopped chocolate; stir until chocolate is melted. Immediately serve warm ganache alongside cinnamon-sugar dusted cookies.
