TWD - World Peace Cookies



This week's TWD recipe has been chosen by Jessica of cookbookhabit. She has chosen the cookies that have been whirring around the blogosphere since Dorie's book first came out - the World Peace Cookies. These cookies are so named because someone told Dorie that they were so good, they'd promote world peace.

And so these cookies are good - not sure if they would really promote world peace, but the story is a good 'un. The cookies themselves are a cinch to make, and it is a case of substance over style - they are chunky cookies, but pack an amazing taste punch. You'd never guess it when they first come out of the oven, because they are quite squishy at that stage, but once they have been left to their own devices for the recommended time, they firm up and become crunchy, chocolatey nuggets of deliciousness.

Thanks to Jessica for this week's choice. You can make yourself seriously hungry by checking out everyone else's World Peace Cookies at the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll.

I agree - I've had them right out of the oven, and they're not nearly as good. After cooling - delicious!

Hi Blonde Duick, mine don't, but see Tammy's comment below yours.

Hi Pinkstripes - I took mine to work too and they disappeared like hotcakes.

Hi Caitlin - yes, they are yummy once cooled!

Hi Lorraine, my thoughts exactly.

Thanks Pamela.

Hi Jules, mine didn't last that long ...

Hi Ivy, they are - Jess has the recipe.

Hi Natalia, mine hardly spread at all - just enough so that the crimbly bits melded in (which was good).

Thanks Jennifer :)

I am with you Tanya!

Cookies look great. They ARE a cinch to make and so easy to store before hand. Usually nothing to store after baking.

Cakelaw said...

Hi Maria, these could easily become my new favourites - aside from Tim Tams.

Thanks Arfi :)

Agreed TeaLady - my kind of cookies!
