Tuesdays with Dorie: World Peace Cookies



Jessica of cookbookhabit chose World Peace Cookies for this week's TWD recipe. I do remember reading in TWD that Dorie is crazy for these!

This was a pretty easy recipe, everything went well. I used freshly ground sea salt instead of fleur de sel. When making these keep in mind that these are slice and bake cookies so chill at least 3 hours (I did mine overnight). These came out beautifully, after letting them sit in the cookie jar for a few hours, they became soft and chewy, much different than right out of the oven with a gritty texture I thought.







enjoy,

So beautiful! And I think I actually liked the dough almost as much as the cookies, so thanks for the shot of the dough! Looks great!

Your cookies look fantastic! I like mine better after they had "aged" in the cookie jar!

I tried these and they did not turn out good. I should try them again because yours look really good.

They look great! Aren't they just the best cookies? I love how you can make them ahead of time - love the photo of them trailing along the cookbook page! Nicely done!

Ok, you can't tempt a prego with chocolate cookies that look this divine. I am running to the store now.

Looks like yours sliced up perfectly! Mine were a little crumbly but turned out ok.

I love the cookies.....but more than that, I love that cool vintage plate you used in the first photo....do you have a generous great aunt somewhere or do you use ebay? :)

Thanks everyone!

Jess- I too like the way the dough lookd, and loved that there are no eggs in this. So even its safer to eat raw. :)

Vibi- Is that the style? I have no idea, but the back of the plate says Germany on it.

Shari- while I was mixing the dough, I ket it going until it all combined, maybe for a few seconds longer, just until it wasn't crumbly anymore.

Mary- No no, I found the plate at a favorite 2nd hand shop. I have found several pieces you've seen in my blog, there and for only a couple dollars each! Perhaps it was someone's great aunt once!

Love the pic of cookies on the book. They look tasty. I will make them again cause they are so easy, especially if you are a busy mom.

I tried to comment on this last night. Must be my java.


A little peace goes a long way.
A little chocolate usually brings a little piece.


I'm hungry.
