Give World Peace Cookies a Chance

Tuesday is the sweetest day.

This week in Tuesdays with Dorie, Jessica of cookbookhabit chose World Peace Cookies, page 138-139 of Dorie Greenspan's Baking: from my home to yours. Please see Jessica's site for the recipe, today's date.

These are delicious, slice and bake cookies, with a lovely chocolate crumb. I used chocolate and candy coated sunflower seeds instead of chocolate chips, just for some colour. We could all use a little colour in our lives, couldn't we?
