These superdecadent, bittersweet cookies are excerpted from the Joys of Baking by Samantha Seneviratne, and inspired by Dorie Greenspan’s aptly named World Peace Cookies.
These were an absolute and utter fail. I followed the directions exactly so I don't know what went wrong. I have never had such a disaster with a recipe.
1. The dough is too soft to effectively roll into a log.
2. The addition of chocolate made it impossible to slice into neat, 1/4 thin slices.
3. The cookies spread together into an absolute mess on my cookie sheets. Too bad I can't upload a photo of the baked, sloppy mess.
Delicious! Added some orange zest and used Bob's Red Mill light rye flour. Left them overnight in the fridge and they were easy to slice.
Very adult tasting!
Delicious & taste even better the next day! I added about 1/4 cup of finely chopped dried cranberries (have made the Dorie recipe). Easy to make but my dough crumbled a bit when I was slicing but could have been due to cranberries. However, they made them even better!
These are some of the best cookies I have either made or eaten. I am going to make them for this year's Christmas cookie exchange.
