World Peace Cookies - TWD


This week for TWD Jessica of cookbookhabit chose World Peace Cookies on page 138-139 of Dorie Greenspan's Baking: From my home to yours. I had made these before but they didn't turn out like they looked in the book. I'm still not entirely sure what I did wrong. Maybe I used too much butter, but my cookies on this post spread quite a bit. They were still tasty and I also had added kraft caramel bits to the cookie. This time, I was worried I did something wrong until I read the P & Q on TWD website. I realized then this cookie was crumbly.


I was able to press the dough together and slice them, but it wasn't the easiest thing to do! However, they turned out like I thought they should look!

I gave some of these cookies to my son Chris and the rest I gave to one of our graduate students at work who had a birthday on Saturday (hope you had a great birthday Uditha!).


To see how the other TWD members fared with their World Peace Cookies you can check out our blogroll.

  5. My dough was a crumbly mess, but I just really worked it until it came together. My cookies turned out fine. My dad used to work for Kraft and caramels were always in our house. I bet they were good in these!

  16. If everyone in the world could enjoy cookies that looked as good as these, there would definitely be peace in the world. Maybe that should be our new fiscal bail-out plan -- cookies for everyone! ;)

  20. I love, as in loveLoveLOVE, these cookies. I first made them a year ago and have been obsessed since. Although I have not made them since I made about 250 of 'em for a party last summer. That kind of did me for a while. ;)
