DC LYL: World Peace Cookies

   Cookies and yeasted Pretzels  were my gateway baking experience to bread! And this is a post about cookies. On November 2 I had the good fortune of meeting Dori Greenspan, noted cookbook author. I brought my wellworn cookbook,  Paris Sweets  for her to sign and she also signed a copy of her new latest cookie cookbook, Dorie's Cookies! 

 The recipe is in both of these cookbooks but it is a tasty recipe. I'm not going to give it here but you would be able to find it if you would buy the book.  I don't think it's my favorite chocolate cookie but it is it tasty chocolate cookie.  I think if people made more of these cookies there would be more peace in the world! 

I have been baking cookies for many years and it was a personal thrill to meet a cookbook author!

There would be wars breaking out over securing the last three cookies. ;-)

Especially if it was my last cookie and doubly so if it was a chocolate one.   They say there can be no love without humor so it makes sense that there can be no peace without cookies.  I sure want to kill, kill, kill when the cookies are gone - but maybe that isn't the lack of cookies doing the talking.

Many people don't know that global warming is really caused by a lack of chocolate on the earth.   People get pretty hot and bothered about that shortage and that is why they say people cause global warming..... but Lucy is pretty sure there really is a chocolate deficiency at the heart of the problem.

I think I see twins,or at least sisters, in that photo of you two.

Happy Baking in the new year Truth Serum.

I like your theory of global warming.

is Lucy allowed to eat chocolate? When we had dogs I think we fed them chocolate to occasionally and they never got sick but now days you are not supposed to see your dogs chocolate…

Thank you Pal! I had a great time that week before the election, in New York City at the famous James Beard House.
