Visualize World Peace...Cookies, That Is.

Yes, folks, the good news is that I am actually going to post a Tuesdays With Dorie on a Tuesday. The bad news? There is none! We are eating chocolate, so it's all good.

I have high hopes for these..I made chocolate cookies with some salt a few years ago...LOVED them..and cannot remember the recipe. This could be the one.

I love it when I have all the ingredients. Isn't flour sifted with cocoa pretty? And I just happened to have a sample tin of Fleur de Sel (Thanks, The Meadow...)

So is chopped chocolate...pretty, I mean.

I am rushing (what else is new) ...I want to take the cookies to a Super Bowl party...so I can't let the cookies chill. I did follow Dorie's light touch instructions, though--mixed until only just combined...I have Scharffen Berger chocolate...lucky me (and lucky people who are eating these..

I rolled them into small balls and flattened them to about the 1/2 inch Dorie wants...I baked one minute longer than she says, too...maybe they are a smidge over 1/2 inch...Mmm. Love these, and yes, I do believe this is the recipe--the salt is there, detectable, but not overwhelming. They are so delicate, too--they melt in your mouth, which, I believe after these weeks of baking, is a result of Dorie's instructions to mix lightly...

Go get yourself some World Peace...I've got mine.

Oh...your cookies are so perfectly shaped.

I think rolling them into balls made them such a prettier cookie than the slice and bake route.

Very nice photos. I especially like the flour with cocoa one! Very nice.

They look great - and so nice to know you can roll them if you just can't wait to chill the dough.

The S-B cocoa powder gives it such a lovely color. Nice.

I also loved the flavor of the fleur de sel. I like the way yours look since you didn't go the slice and bake route.
