Found this recipe at the beauticians the other day, in a 'Bonapetit' magazine. This woman had started her own business selling cookies and only cookies, and ironically her first stand was at a beauty salon...(perhaps a sign for me lol) Anyway, for some reason she decided to make public her best selling cookie, 'World Peace Cookies' I made them, and they are pretty good! So thought I'd share with all you wonderful peoples!
This is my photo...and believe it or not, I actually followed this recipe to a tee :)

How to Make World Peace Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Sift flour, cocoa and baking soda into a medium bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat butter in large bowl until smooth but not fluffy. Add both sugars, vanilla and salt, beat until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add flour mixture, beat until just blended (mixture may be crumbly) Add chopped chocolate, mix just to distribute (if dough doesn't come together, knead lightly in bowl to form a ball) Divide dough in half. Place each half onto sheet of plastic wrap. Form each into 1 1/2" diameter log. Wrap each in plastic, chill until firm, about 3 hours. Can be made 3 days ahead. Keep chilled.
  2. Preheat over to 325. Line 2 cookies sheets with parchment paper. Using thin sharp knife, cut logs crosswise into 1/2" thick rounds. Space 1" apart on pan. Bake 1 sheet at a time until cookies appear dry and cracked (cookie will not be firm or golden at edges) 11-12 minutes. Transfer to rack to cool.
  3. Store in air tight container at room temperature.
