TWD: World peace in a cookie


I'm a cookie gal. I love all kinds of cookies and generally speaking, the more chocolate the better. As such, this week's TWD pick was right up my alley. Although I'm not a stranger to this recipe, being a big Pierre Herme fan, I just couldn't pass up the excuse to make these again. Yes, they are that good. Trust me.

These World Peace cookies, aka Korova cookies, are the brainchild of the aforementioned Pierre Herme. They are a crumbly chocolate sablé studded with chocolate chips and enhanced with fleur de sel. Essentially, they are a sophisticated French twist on the good ol' American chocolate chip cookie.

If you've never tried chocolate chip cookies made with fleur de sel before, you're really missing out. There's something about the slight saltiness that makes the cookies simply divine. M's verdict on these cookies? He thinks they really could bring us one step closer to that ever elusive world peace.

I have made these previously as well and you're right, they are really good! I would have made them again too if we didn't already have all kinds of sweets hanging around.

we don't get this type of cookies in our place so we need to search in internet and then we try to make this type of cookies in home. and thanks of them who is helping for sending this recipe, but its deepens on presentation, If any website don't show good pics also we are not impressed with that food, in this blog I m finding good stuff.
