TWD - World Peace Cookies


I must confess that this was not the first time I have made Dorie’s world peace cookies, chosen by Jessica of Cookbookhabit for this week’s TWD recipe. These delicious cookies are one of my new favourites. They are so easy to make and are so yummy!

The finished cookies have the texture I love best – crisp but with an ever, ever so slight chew – the kind where the cookie gets a bit stuck in your teeth if you know what I mean! The addition of ½ a teaspoon of fleur de sel gives that je ne sais quoi, that unless you were in the know as to the ingredient list, there is a delicious taste that you can’t quite put your finger on. The other two times I have made these cookies I have made them with regular cocoa, but this time I made them with dutched cocoa which made them even more richer and delicious. I have also made them using peanut butter chips instead of chocolate chips. You can’t get peanut butter chips in NZ, but Sarah, a fellow foodlover, kindly sent me over a packet from the states. I have used them all now – having eaten most of the packet rather than putting them into baking as they are so delicious!

The cookies use an easy slice and bake method. I love these cookies and know that I will continue to make them frequently. See if the other TWDers loved them as much as me.

So glad you liked these...I'd love to try the peanut butter chip version too. I agree, they do have that slight hint of chewiness that makes them distinctive.

Those look absolutely perfect. They've become my go-to cookie as well - anything that can be stashed in the freezer until needed and still packs that sort of punch is a keeper!

Those look great, Tammy! I agree, peanut butter is great in these (I used mini peanut butter cup baking pieces in some of mine).

Jacque said...

Oh, I'm glad you liked them so much. They are a easy cookie for when you've just got to have something sweet and chocolately.

Ok, I have to try these with Peanut Butter Chips - what a great idea! These look great - I love how you can pre-make and then bake whenever you need a chocolate fix! Nice job!
