World Peace Cookies
World Peace Cookies
What a perfect name for such a delicious cookie!

World Peace Cookies
For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Jessica of cookbookhabit chose World Peace Cookies on pages 138-139 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours. Check out Jessica's blog for the recipe or get the awesome book!

World Peace Cookies World Peace Cookies
This recipe takes just a few minutes to make...butter, cocoa powder (I used Dutch processed), baking soda, flour, vanilla, brown sugar, salt and bittersweet chocolate. Dorie suggests fleur de sel (salt) but I used Trader Joe's sea salt (with the built-in grinder). Some people had crumbly dough, but I got lucky and it came together okay. I chilled it overnight and sliced it with a sharp knife in the morning. I made half the recipe and got 20 cookies.

World Peace Cookies
If you have a few minutes of mixing time, and an overnight of chilling time, make some of these yummy egg-less shortbread cookies.

Please check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers and see their masterpieces!
Pin It!

How did you get such amazingly pretty and uncrumbly cookies? I'm glad looks didn't matter with these...because they were so so good.

Steph said... [Reply to comment]

I don't think I've seen a more perfectly round cookie yet! You are such a perfectionist!

Peggy said... [Reply to comment]

I can't get over how perfectly round yours are! I must have made my rolls skinnier because I did get the 36 cookies. Yours look fabulous.

I love the 2nd picture, Mary. The cookies look like they've been rumbling! They look fabulous, and thankfully I didn't have any crumbly cookie issues, either!

Yours are so round and perfect looking. And you got quite the impressive yield from a half batch. Glad you liked them - they're favorites around here.

love the pictures with the cookies all stacked up!

Isabelle Lambert said... [Reply to comment]

tes photos sont absolument splendides, ce qui n'était pas évident, car je n'ai pas trouvé que ces biscuits étaient " photogéniques "
Bravo :)

Jessica said... [Reply to comment]

Your pictures are amazing -- I am so jealous! How on earth did you get the cookies to stack like that? They look fantastic!

Monica H said... [Reply to comment]

Your cookies look great! I just googled these cookies yesterday and now they're here---must be fate :-)

great looking stack of cookies!!

Engineer Baker said... [Reply to comment]

Yours look all the same - how do you do that?! Beautiful job!

betty geek said... [Reply to comment]

HAHA! I did get crumbly dough, but that didn't stop me! Yum!

Yours look like super model cookies.

Steph said... [Reply to comment]

Mary, I forgot to ask, what kind of cookie sheets do you use?

Tammy said... [Reply to comment]

Those look flipping perfect. Very cool.

The cookies look fantastic and the pictures are lovely.

Judy said... [Reply to comment]

Love your photos. My cookie dough wasn't crumbly either. I've been baking a few at a time so they will last longer, but I think having some dough in the freezer at all times is the way to go.

farah said... [Reply to comment]

Well done, your cookies look fantastic!

Megan said... [Reply to comment]

Ah, as always, your finished product looks amazing.

Banjo said... [Reply to comment]

Your pictures are gorgeous and your WP cookies are perfect! WOW. Great job!

Unknown said... [Reply to comment]

You have some secret for making perfect rounds, I think! I may have a bottle of that TJ's salt in my pantry...will try it for next time.

AmyRuth said... [Reply to comment]

I love your photos. I'm not the photographer, Corbin, my 15 year old is.....but how do you get the white out background? Looks so elegant. Great job!

BTW your workplace is really a lucky group of folks. Yumm yumm

PS Dorie says Dutch processed happens to help with the crumbly stuff - I learned that just today. :-)

I love how you've carefully stacked them in that second picture!

CB said... [Reply to comment]

I love that first cookie stack picture! I didn't have crumbly cookie issues either. I think it was the overnight chill that helped. Glad you enjoyed the recipe!

Hey - someone else who used the TJ's with grinder Sea Salt! Your cookies look terrific and so perfectly shaped!

eatme_delicious said... [Reply to comment]

Holy crap your cookies turned out absolutely perfect! I attempted making these but halved the recipe (and not the butter!) so I have to try again. Hope mine turn out as gorgeous as yours.
