For this weeks Tuesdays With Dorie, Jessica of CookBookHabit selected World Peace Cookies. Not many words are required to describe this treat — This is one hellava delicious cookie! I’ve made this cookie numerous times without fail (as evidenced by the stain splattered page in my copy of BFMHTY), and everyone raves about how delicious it tastes.
The ingredient list and instructions are really simple — it’s essentially a chocolate shortbread with bits of chocolate and sea salt strewn throughout. I typically follow the recipe as written, as I think it’s perfect as is. My baking notes:
Chocolate: I used Valhrona bittersweet mini-chips and cocoa powder
Sea Salt: I used fleur de sel. I also sprinkled additional fleur de sel on top of the sliced dough before baking — it adds just a touch more saltiness, which is so unbelievably addictive with the chocolate.
Dough: Instead of shaping the dough into a round log, I shaped it into a 2″ square log. The shape makes it easier for me to slice the dough. As my cookies are slightly larger, I ended up with two dozen cookies (versus the three dozen indicated in the book).
My favorite way to enjoy this cookie:
