This week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe is World Peace Cookies, thanks to Jessica of cookbookhabit. While that title may seem pretty hyperbolic, it isn't - well, at least, not by much. These cookies are so simple - just your run-of-the-mill flour, cocoa powder, butter, sugar, and the other usual cookie ingredients - but they are so chocolatey and so addictive.
I rushed to make these cookies after work on Monday and was pleasantly surprised at how quickly they came together. Dorie says to refrigerate the dough for 3 hours, but since I was short on time, I froze them for just an hour and a half. No need to defrost - I just sliced them and baked them for 1 minute longer, as suggested by Dorie.
Although World Peace Cookies are supposed to contain fleur de sel, which is meant to give them a nice salty-sweet contrast, I don't own any. Instead, I used kosher salt. The result was a slightly salty after-taste that really complemented the double-chocolate flavour of the cookies. The cookies were chewy at first but became quite crispy once they finished cooling off.
This recipe is a definite keeper - a simple double chocolate cookie that's full of flavour. For the recipe, visit Jessica's blog, cookbookhabit. Thanks, Jessica!
