Recipe Ingredients for World Peace Chocolate Cookies

1 1/4 cups flour (175 gm)
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder (30 gm)
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
11 tablespoons unsalted butter (1 stick + 3 tbsp)
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt or 1/2 teaspoon fleur de sel
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 ounces bittersweet chocolate or 3/4 cup mini chocolate chips or a combination of both

Recipe Directions for World Peace Chocolate Cookies

  1. Sift the flour, cocoa and baking soda together.

  2. Working with a stand mixer, preferably fitted with a paddle attachment, or with a hand mixer in a large bowl, beat the butter on medium speed until soft and creamy. Add both sugars, the salt and vanilla extract and beat for 2 minutes more.

  3. Turn off the mixer. Pour in the flour, drape a kitchen towel over the stand mixer to protect yourself and your kitchen from flying flour and pulse the mixer at low speed about 5 times, a second or two each time. Take a peek ? if there is still a lot of flour on the surface of the dough, pulse a couple of times more; if not, remove the towel. Continuing at low speed, mix for about 30 seconds more, just until the flour disappears into the dough ? for the best texture, work the dough as little as possible once the flour is added, and don?t be concerned if the dough looks a little crumbly. Toss in the chocolate pieces and mix only to incorporate.

  4. Turn the dough out onto a work surface, gather it together and divide it in half. Working with one half at a time, shape the dough into logs that are 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate them for at least 3 hours. (The dough can be refrigerated for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 months. If you?ve frozen the dough, you needn?t defrost it before baking ? just slice the logs into cookies and bake the cookies 1 minute longer.)

  5. Getting ready to bake: Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 325F (160C). Line two baking sheets with parchment or silicone mats.

  6. Working with a sharp thin knife, slice the logs into rounds that are 1/2 inch thick. (The rounds are likely to crack as you?re cutting them ? don?t be concerned, just squeeze the bits back onto each cookie.) Arrange the rounds on the baking sheets, leaving about one inch between them.

  7. Bake the cookies one sheet at a time for 12 minutes ? they won?t look done, nor will they be firm, but that?s just the way they should be. Transfer the baking sheet to a cooling rack and let the cookies rest until they are only just warm, at which point you can serve them or let them reach room temperature.

  8. Serving: The cookies can be eaten when they are warm or at room temperature ? I prefer them at room temperature, when the textural difference between the crumbly cookie and the chocolate bits is greatest ? and are best suited to cold milk or hot coffee.

  9. Do ahead: Packed airtight, cookies will keep at room temperature for up to 3 days (Deb note: not a chance); they can be frozen for up to 2 months. They can also be frozen in log form for months, and can be sliced and baked directly from the freezer, adding a coupld minutes to the baking time.
