Tuesdays With Dorie – World Peace Cookies

Tidbit 1 – Never eat cottage cheese and drink coffee together. Just don’t do it.

Tidbit 2 – Never underestimate Pittsburgh.

Tidbit 3 – Never pass up the opportunity to bake Dorie’s World Peace Cookies. Despite the name, I never expected this recipe to be that great. I just expected another chocolate cookie. Wrong. These are chocolate melt-in-your-mouth shortbread-like cookies. Amazing.



I don’t know why, but cookies are always the hardest thing for me to bake. I can never get them the correct shape. Sometimes they stick to the cookie sheet, throwing me into a rage. Several bakers suggested that I buy parchment paper. However, when I was in Wal Mart, I found 2 silcone mats on clearance for $7. Based on my online shopping, I knew that was a great price. I would probably spend $7 in parchment paper anyway. Plus I was helping the environment. I must say if you don’t have silcone mats, go to the store right now. You will save so much frustration. Plus mine has a ruler and little circles for cookie placement. Isn’t that awesome or what?




One problem I did have with this recipe is the dough crumbled a little too much. I think I might not have mixed the dry ingredients as much as I should have, but I was afraid of overmixing. I did manage to form the dough into blobs, so it wasn’t a total loss.

  1. They look delicious!!! Double-chocolaty, yummy. Great deal on the silicon mats!!

  2. Murray is so adorable! Is he sleeping on a box of mushrooms? Hehehhehee Kitties..

  3. Wow, that's a great deal on the mats. I use parchment under my cookies, not just because of the sticking, but also because it gives me that crisp edge without burning. I was tempted to buy a silpat, but then I read that cookies don't spread as much on those mats and well.. I just love thin cookies. If you do buy parchment, you should try Costco. I buy 3 rolls there and it lasts me a long time, but mostly because I reuse the ones for cookies. I feel bad for throwing out paperlike things because it makes me feel like I just chopped a branch off a tree.

    I almost bought you silicon sheet for Christmas but I had already bought the earrings. They are just magic. I work with them for cookies. You can even put them in the dishwasher, well mine anyways. They have a whole set of tools too, like cake or muffin molds and all. I'll probably invest in some when I start buying for apartment again. They save you time and trouble.
    Well good job on the cookies, I know how they can be your pet peeves ;)

  5. Your cookies look great – and I am also a big fan of the silicone mats. That was quite a deal!

    I've found silicone mats at Marshall's too. Now I use them for everything. Your cookies look just like mine – love them so much.

  7. That's a great buy for silicon liners! Looks delicious!

  8. Okay, it might be just me, but I don't think I'd have to be advised not to eat cottage cheese and drink coffee! Happy for your Steelers. Your kitty is so cute.

    I bought my parchment paper in the Wilton section of a Hobby Lobby (Michaels would do as well). They always have a 40% coupon for a regular priced item each week online. Your cookies look great.

  9. Your cookies look great. No worries about me drinking coffee and eating cottage cheese at the same time, the thought of cottage cheese makes me want to gag.

  10. Coffee and cottage cheese. Eek. That sounds bad! hahaha! The cookies, on the other hand, look delicious!

  11. Lucky you on the W-M deal. I will have to check ours out just in case. Great looking cookie.

  12. Weather sliced or blobed, this is one of my favorite cookies!!!

  13. I think the shape is the least important part of the cookie. As long as they have chocolate, I'm sure they're delicious!

  14. Those cookies do look great! Thanks for the tidbits. I don't drink coffee so #1 won't be a porblem, but still good to know.

  15. The cookies look fabulous!

    With my chocolate Christmas cookies, I know they need more mixing than I would usually expect. The more they're mixed, the less crumbly the dough gets. Might work with these ones, too.
