TWD Baked or Unbaked Deliciousness

Posted by BAKE-EN at 8:22 PM


World peace cookie dough is the best unbaked dough I've ever made at home.** Friends who knows me really well (especially in a work environment) know the years of research and caloric intake it took to make such a bold statement. Prior to culinary school I was a bit squeamish about tasting anything raw, but my friend and schoolmate Erin clued me in to how good doughs and batters were raw. Erin even went so far as to eat raw yeasted dough-more than once! (Side note-Erin, maybe you're actually growing a chocolate cherry loaf in your belly?) Thanks to Erin, I've been trying raw cookie dough ever since and I'm proud to say that I think it's made my immune system stronger!

So yes, World peace cookies are amazing raw (no raw eggs to worry about either, so you can go crazy). They are also amazingly simple to put together. Good ingredients are key to making these cookies amazing.


I made my cookies with Valrhona cocoa powder, fleur de sel from Brittany and a combo of Scharffenberger 70% and Callebaut milk chocolate. Those ingredients with fresh butter and King Arthurs flour combined to create an addicting chocolate cookie.




The salt in these cookies really brightens the flavors of the chocolate, and makes them feel more "adult." Thanks to Jessica of Cookbookhabit for chosing this recipe. You can find the recipe at her website.


 

**Sofra employees know that the best unbaked cookie dough in a bakery is either Maureo or Chocolate Chunk (the debate will never end-they are both that good).

Your cookies look great!! I thought the salt flavor gave them a really nice taste too.. although I think I should have put just a bit more! Love you pics, good job!

I liked the raw dough more than the cookie. Shhhhhhhhh.

I love cookie dough, and this was definitely a delicious dough!

Oh, my! Those cookies are so thick and tempting. Yummy! And I'm all for raw dough...with eggs or without!

We did eat a lot of the dough, I must admit! My son has always liked the dough better than the cookies in the past, although this time even he had to admit the cookies were amazing.

Your cookies look so good! The dough (and the finished product) was so tasty!

I agree...I think the raw dough is the best...is it gross that all the TWD recipes taste really good raw?

I am a big fan of raw cookie dough. Yours look delicious and I am glad they turned out so well!

Yep!! They were good raw, but they were outstanding baked. Great job!

I could never get into raw cookie dough. Not because of a fear of raw eggs, just because it was never my thing.

Jess on February 4, 2009 at 1:21 PM said...

I am also an unreformed raw cookie dough eater. And this dough is the best (you don't even have to worry about eggs). I can tell your cookies were amazing just from reading the ingredient list.

HA! I LOVED the dough for these... I didn't mind the crumbling because I just ate all of the little pieces that fell off! Your cookies look so good!

i ate a lot of the dough too. the salt was so good in these.

I love how yours look with the thick cut! These are so fabulous, and I think it has a lot to do with the fleur de sel.

Your WP cookies look wonderful. And I agree, the dough is the tastiest ever. YUM!

Barbara on February 5, 2009 at 8:12 PM said...

Mmm, yum! I'm all for raw dough tasting -- all in the interests of research, y'know...

By the way, what is a Maureo? Sounds interesting...and has to be good if it can compete with chocolate chunk...
