World Peace Cookies

Who doesn’t want world peace?

Who doesn’t want cookies?

Combine the two, and it’s pure, salty, chocolately magic.  But don’t take my word for it.

World Peace Cookies
          recipe from Baking from my home to yours

1 1/4 cups flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
11 tablespoons butter, room temperature
2/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon fleur de sel (or 1/4 tsp fine sea salt)
1 teaspoon vanilla
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped into chips (or a generous 3/4 cups mini chips)

Sift the flour, cocoa and baking soda together.
Beat butter until soft and creamy.
Add both sugars, salt and vanilla and beat for 2 minutes.
Add dry ingredients.
Mix on low speed just until flour is incorporated – for the best texture, work the dough as little as possible.
Add the chocolate pieces and mix only to incorporated.
Turn dough onto work surface and divide into two pieces.
Roll each piece into a 1 1/2 inch diameter log.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 3 hours or up to 3 days.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Slice logs into rounds that are 1/2 inch thick.
Arrange the rounds on a baking sheet, allowing 1 inch between them.
Bake for 12 minutes – they won’t look done, and they won’t be firm, but that’s just the way they should be.
Transfer the baking sheet to a rack to cool allowing the cookies to to rest until they are just warm, at which point you can serve them or let them reach room temperature.
