For Tuesdays with Dorie we’ve baked out of order for the month of November. I’ve made 3 of the 4 picks, but alas, I will not be posting the Chocolate Caramel Chestnut Cake chosen by Katya of Second Dinner. I’m sorry Katya, but with the rush of Thanksgiving, work I have to complete before heading out of town, and the cost of some of the difficult to find ingredients for this one, it will end up being a rewind for me some time in the future. It looks delicious and I will try it. Dear readers, to see the marvelous cake I am referring to, head over here to Katya’s blog.
So instead, I went on a cookie baking spree this past weekend. Check in later tonight for Cranberry Orange Spirals and Snickers Peanut Butter Cookies. Today however, I have Dorie’s World Peace Cookies.
There’s been quite a bit of hype over these cookies, seems they are quite popular around the internet and blogosphere. You can read about the origin of the name on Dorie’s site, and there’s also a link to the recipe there.
These cookies are deeply dark and chocolately, with just a hit of saltiness. Very tasty and worthy of a glass of milk for dunking. They are simple to make and tasty to eat.
Alas, I think they are good, but am afraid that all the hype about them raised my expectations far too high and I honestly don’t see what all the fuss is about. :-/ Don’t get me wrong, they are good, I only wish I hadn’t read all about them first.
