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.
