This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Jessica of cookbookhabit. She chose Dorie’s World Peace Cookies which are located on pages 138-139 in Baking: From My Home to Yours. I have seen these cookies floating around the blogosphere for awhile now, and have always wondered what they tasted like. For some reason I didn’t think they were chocolate. Don’t ask me why it just didn’t occur to me until I started reading the recipe.
I was really close to not making this recipe this week because I was completely out of butter. I ended up borrowing some from and friend and used some left over chocolate chips in the recipe. Since I procrastinated I decided to form the cookies into balls instead of slice and bake. I also changed the recipe a little. Instead of sea salt, which I am currently out of, I used1/4 tsp of table salt. For the cocoa powder I used half black cocoa powder and half regular unsweetened cocoa powder. For the final change I added in 1 tsp of instant espresso powder.
The cookies turned out really cute, and I actually think they look better when you form them into little balls instead of the slice and bake. The taste of the cookies was nice. I would probably make them again if someone wanted and chocolate chocolate cookie, but for me I will just stick with regular chocolate chip cookies. Oh, someone also suggested that I make sandwich cookies out of them and put icing in the center. Something on the lines of a World Peace Oreo 🙂
