TWD - Korova/World Peace Cookies

What could I say about these bring-Peace-to-the-World-while-satisfying-a-chocolate-craving cookie that hasn't been said before? They are chocolatey, buttery, crumbly, sophisticated yet approachable, possibly the easiest sablé recipe there is out there and dare I say, the best chocolate cookies I've ever had.

I just love the subtly sweet and salty taste of these. I've made them probably a dozen times, using different chocolates and they always turn out perfectly. I've even used the dough in Ina's Espresso Ice Cream recipe instead of the chocolate covered espresso beans that she calls for. That was a few summers ago. Now I'm craving World Peace Espresso Ice Cream for breakfast. Oh, what Tuesdays with Dorie do to me!

Visit Jessica's blog, Cookbookhabit, for the recipe. She's the one responsible for a few hundred bakers posting about World Peace Cookies on the same day. One small step towards a happier World.

You're evil. =) I don't care for coffee or espresso flavored ice cream, but now you've got me thinking about all the other flavors that I could add this cookie dough to. Evil.
