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.
