TWD: World Peace Cookies

This week's TWD recipe was chosen by Jessica at Cookbook Habit and if you click over to her blog you can find the complete recipe.  And you will want this recipe.

The recipe says that the dough will be crumbly and it really isn't kidding.  Kind of reminded me of a pile of dirt really, but at least it was dirt with fabulous little mini chocolate chips throughout.  The recipe gives you the option of the mini chocolate chips or chopping bittersweet chocolate.  I confess that I was lazy...

At this point in the recipe you roll the dough into two logs and refrigerate for a couple of hours or overnight.  I made the dough yesterday and today sliced and baked two pans of cookies.  One of the best things about this recipe, says this empty nest grandma, is that it doesn't make a lot of cookies.  Because really, if you make chocolate cookies you're going to eat them and I so don't need them.

They come out the perfect texture - very lightly crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside.  Truly the perfect chocolate cookie.

I wonder if anyone has added nuts to theirs? I made mine per the recipe and they were wonder, but I love nuts.

They look yummy! I am heading over to get the recipe now. I really like recipes that make a dozen or so cookies. Otherwise I have to send them to work with my husband.

I got a lot of cookies out of this recipe, I guess I cut or rolled them smaller. I shared, though. They look great!

Your logs are so perfectly round! I agree that it's good this doesn't make six dozen cookies...that could mean a clothing size if I ate them all!

I totally thought while making these cookies that the dough reminded me of dirt. Sweet sweet chocolate chip dirt. HAHA. Glad you enjoyed the cookies!
