Tuesdays With Dorie: World Peace Cookies

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!

These look great Kait! These are just the best choc-refrigerator cookies, are they not? :) I love how you can pre-make them and bake whenever you want, what could be more perfect. Beautiful cookies!

Hi Kaitlin! How the heck did you get perfectly round cookies? Did you mold them into logs? That is awesome!

These were very good, I agree. Especially with a glass of milk. Yummmmmmmmmm.

Sugar B: I molded them into logs between saran wrap - just rolled it between my palms and the counter til it was round. They ended up a bit small, though, so just be careful you don't over-roll.

I took advantage of the freezer as well for the first round of baking. Now the log is in the fridge, ready at a moment's notice. They really were (are) pretty delicious!
