World Peace Cookies

I've made these chocolate short bread cookies before and they are a really good chocolate cookie, pretty easy to make, they are slice and bake so you do have to refrigerate them for a while before baking but you can make them up to 3 days before and then bake them. Will them create world peace, maybe not, but they are really really good.

World Peace Cookies

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 stick plus 3 Tbsps unsalted butter at room temperature
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp fine sea salt
1 tsp vanilla
5 ounces bitter sweet chocolate chips or mini semisweet chocolate chips

Combine the flour, cocoa, and baking soda in a medium sized bowl. Working with an electric mixture, beat butter until soft add in both sugars, salt, and vanilla, beat for a few more minutes until combined. Slowly add in the flour and mix only until combined. Stir in the chocolate pieces.

Turn the dough out onto a work surface roll into two logs about 1 1/2 inches thick. Wrap in plastic wrap and put in to the refrigerator for at least 3 hours before cutting and baking.

When you are ready to bake preheat the oven to 325. Slice into 1/2 inch thick rounds and place about an inch apart. Mine baked for 9 minutes however the original recipe says 12 minutes just until the cookies are set. Let the cookies sit on the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. Serve at room temperature or freeze until you need them.

This recipe is a good solid, actually better than just good, chocolate cookie, that you should keep as a staple.

Eat them, love them and spread some peace.
