Tuesdays with Dorie: World Peace Cookies and 2 Awards!

I'm so happy someone chose Dorie's World Peace Cookies. I've seen them floating around the blogosphere for probably 12 months but have never gotten around to making them. Thank you Jessica of Cookbookhabit!

As with most slice and bake cookies these were a breeze to whip up. And even better without any egg in the mix I could eat the cookie dough! So I did ... lots!

I know many people found them very crumbly to slice. I had the same problem but they did squeeze back together pretty well. Any bits leftover, well, I ate them!

The taste test ...

Sensational. What else can I say? I really loved these and can see them becoming a regular. I ended up using salted butter (because that's all I had left) and added a few grinds of salt from the grinder so I have no way of knowing how close to the required amount I actually got. Next time I'll make them exactly as is.

All my taste testers agreed these were probably the best chocolate chip cookies they'd eaten! Although my husband still prefers the Whopper Drops - in his mind that is now the standard against which all Dorie's cookies are measured! :)

UPDATE - they taste great frozen ... so much for hiding them in the freezer!

It makes me so happy that other people do actually read and enjoy my blog. Over the past few weeks I have received 3 awards from 2 lovely bloggers - the Lemonade Award from Cakelaw and My Baking Heart and the Fabulous Blog Award also from My Baking Heart.

Thanks ladies, you made my day! If you haven't already checked out their blogs make sure you do!

The rule of the awards are:
1. Put the logo on your blog/post.
2. Nominate other fabulous blogs which show great attitude
3. Link to your nominees within your post.
4. Let your nominees know that they have received the award by commenting on their blog.
5. Link this post to the person who gave you this award.

I am passing both awards on to the following bloggers:

Annie of Annie's Eats
Natashya of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies
Jacque of Daisy Lane Cakes
Heather of Sherry Trifle
Mary of The Food Librarian
Prudy of Prudence Pennywise
Wendy of Pink Stripes


  1. Your cookies look so perfect! Mine stayed in the same shape as when I cut them but I think they actually froze in the fridge.
    Thank you so very much for your generous awards! You have made my day. :)

  2. That's so nice that you are giving awards to your blogging friends...they'll be honored, I'm sure!

    Nice job on the cookies!

  3. Mine crumbled like that, but I smushed them back together again.

  4. Congrats on your awards - terrific name and blog! And the cookies are the best, are they not? They're my new favorite "slice and bake" - and yes, I had a couple "frozen", unbaked one. They were equally as good! Nice job!

  5. yeah, it was neat how they just came together, huh? wonderful looking cookies.

  6. Congratulations on your awards! That's great. Your cookies look wonderful.

  7. Salted butter is a wonderful idea! I'm going to try that.

  8. They look lovely! Mine pressed back together pretty well too when they broke. Nice idea to freeze them... sorry they were too irresistible ;)

  9. HA! I totally ate all of the crumbly bits as well! These are just too good and your cookies look amazing!

  10. These are indeed the best cookies ever.

  11. So how many cookies are we allowed to eat BEFORE baking?? Good both ways. Yours look great.

  12. These lokk great Susan - and I agree, they taste superb!
