I'm back in the baking groove, thank goodness. And just in time, because this week Jessica of cookbookhabit chose World Peace Cookies for everyone to bake. Quite an intriguing recipe title, don't you think? What's also intriguing is that the original recipe calls for fleur de sel and while I didn't have any fancy varieties on hand, I did actually have some nondescript sea salt that I could use. It adds an interesting saltiness to the cookies. Additionally, the recipe calls for chopped up bittersweet chocolate. Well, as I was perusing my pantry today, I spotted a bar of white chocolate and decided to play around a bit.
Think of these cookies as a chocolate slice and bake shortbread cookie. They are sandy and crumbly. And I must say, they are quite delicious! :) If you happen to get the chance, I highly suggest giving these cookies a try.
The white chocolate was an interesting addition. It was good, but almost too sweet. Next time, and there will be a next time, I would like to try it with the bittersweet chocolate. I should also mention that I added an extra tablespoon of butter to the dough, which kept it from being too crumbly, which some of the other bakers had mentioned as an issue.
Thanks for looking, and if you get a chance, check out what the other TWD bakers did with the recipe!
