Hello February, woa is it really possible we are here already?? Where does the time go?? Too fast I say!! To kick off this months Tuesdays with Dorie, Jessica of Cookbookhabit chose World Peace Cookies. (please see Jessica's blog for the recipe or see page 138 in the book) Traditionally I have never been a fan of chocolate cookies. Now don't get me wrong... I heart chocolate just as much as the next girl, but chocolate cookies have never really "spoken" to me. So when I saw this recipe, of course my first thought was that I might not be a fan. But boy was I wrong!These cookies really were just divine. They were the perfect combination of salty and sweet! And they had a "shortbread' ish" texture which was a nice surprise. The recipe was simple to put together, instead of chocolate chips... I chopped up some semi sweet baking squares I had left over from my holiday baking. I also substituted gluten free (Pamela's mix) flour for all purpose, & was happy to see that was an easy switch. The World Peace Cookies were an absolute hit with everyone I gave them away too (of course I had to get them out of my house asap, for fear of having to add 20 more workouts to my week if I ate them all, ha).... This one is a keeper, and without a doubt will be repeated! Great choice, Jessica!
