Peanut Butter Snickerdoodle Tart with Cinnamon Peanut Crust

These tarts for two start with a cinnamon accented peanut crust as the base for a smooth peanut butter mousse flavored with the signature tastes of the snickerdoodle cookie. A chocolate milk ganache is added on top as a nod to the classic pairing of milk and cookies.
