Give Peace a Chance

When Dorie Greenspan came out with her latest book, Baking: From My Home To Yours, one recipe, in particular stood out to me, World Peace Cookies. With a name like that, how could you not be tempted? I had to make them, Pronto. They are a bit of an obsession, one of my many. You just have to make them for yourself. They are not your ordinary chocolate chocolate chunk cookie. They are a sable (SAH-blay)meaning sand like in texture, they are crumbly and buttery and salty and chocolatey, you'll see. Grab a glass of milk.

It's rainy and overcast here...World Peace Cookies sound like they'd be perfect to perk things up around here.

So Jenni, I made about 3 batches of these. I was wondering what kind of chocolate you were using. I used those new Hershey's dark bars (the ones I posted, but dark instead) and that was the best, then I used a Lindt bittersweet chocolate.. kinda yuck. Then, I used some Lindt and some Guittard green mint chips... yummo!!! So, I was wondering what you like best?
