This week's Tuesdays With Dorie recipe is World Peace Cookies. These are the cookies that my fellow bakers gush most about. I couldn't wait to make them.
Dorie warned they would be crumbly. As I stared at the bottom of the mixing bowl, I thought I was looking at a batch of brown beach sand, not a cookie dough that engenders world peace. I soldiered on, knowing the crumbly-ness was very common. I made rolls in plastic wrap and put them in the refrigerator while I was at work. I daydreamed about their chocolate-y goodness. After dinner, I sliced a few off the log. Instead of little cookies of peace, they became little chocolate bombs, exploding chocolate shrapnel all over my silpat. Tasty shrapnel, but an array of tasty crumbs of varying sizes is hard to serve on a cookie tray.
Two weeks in a row I have not succeeded with our TWD recipe. What happened to my baking mojo? In order to conceal the failure I ate the evidence. Shhh! Please don't tell. Let this latest failure be our little secret.
If you'd like the recipe, please check Jessica at cookbookhabit. And check the other TWD bakers out here. I know they were much more successful than...sob...I was. Not that I'm taking it too seriously that I failed...again.
