TWD World Peace Cookies--Rewind

This delicious cookie recipe was made before I joined TWD. The reviews were so positive I just had to make them (and I love chocolate).
We celebrated  Easter at home this year. Children are miles away and the weather was nasty; we enjoyed a quiet Easter watching General Conference. Counsel from inspired leaders is always welcome. The love and encouragement I felt from Prophets of God was just what I needed.


I decided not to buy Easter candy but I did make Dorie's World Peace Cookies. Wow can I just say these cookies are delicious. These butter-rich, sandy-textured slice and bake cookies are a member of the sable family. Chocolate is the star ingredient so I chopped a bar of Scharffen Berger Chocolate that I had been saving for just the right recipe.  This is a simple cookie with few ingredients, handle the dough as little as possible, chill the dough thoroughly, slice and bake. This just may be the best cookie I have ever eaten!



Check this blog for the recipe and great tips for baking World Peace Cookies. I am thinking that a well stocked freezer should always contain a roll of this delicious cookie dough. You never know when a chocolate craving will hit!
