Wars, floods, earthquakes, tornado's. All of these can be diverted with these cookies. I really need to start looking at the directions for these recipes ahead of time. More than once I have been surprised by the chill time. Not that I am complaining, I most certainly am not. I just need to remember ahead of time to plan my time accordingly. World Peace can only happen when planned.
Hubby had a gig on Saturday so I was hoping to have these ready by the time he got home. No such luck. He got home as I was mixing the dough. My little beater licker was back in action and happy to be. I informed her there were no eggs in the batter so it was completely safe to eat. I took my own advice and tried some of the batter, and some more of the batter, and just a little more. It was a good thing the saran wrap was close at hand because I could have eaten a lot more of the dough before getting it to the fridge.
The defining ingredient in these cookies in Fleur De Something salt. I didn't have any and couldn't find any so I used sea salt instead. I also used milk and semi sweet chocolate chips instead of bittersweet since that is what I had leftover from previous baking adventures. My family loved these cookies. My hubby said "oh! These are really crumbly" Which I thought was really funny since Dorie says in her description that she loves how crumbly they are. We shared a few with neighbors and took the rest to a SuperBowl party. I came home with an empty plate. That was great news since I did not need to finish them off myself.
Thanks to Jessica from Cookbookhabit for choosing this weeks recipe. I had heard about these before and was so happy to finally get to make them. Jessica has the recipe on her site or you can pick up Dories book at Amazon or your local bookstore. Next weeks recipe "Floating Islands".
