Please join me for some World Peace Cookies in this first week of 2021! These cookies are ones that I had read about several years ago and have been wanting to make. The recipe is from Dorie Greenspan's Dorie's Cookies. The cookies are very dark and chocolatey, and almost like a shortbread in texture. They definitely go well with a cup of tea, or coffee, if you prefer. How did the cookies get their name?? It seems a neighbor of Dorie tasted one and gave them the name, being convinced that if everyone in the world ate one, there would be "planetary peace".
I have a simple centerpiece on my kitchen table right now, which is so nice after all the Christmas decorations.
My darling daughter gave me this beautiful spoon for Christmas. Isn't it beautiful? She also gave me some Tazo Vanilla Bean Macaron tea, which was so nice with the cookies.
When Harper and Hayden spent the night, we made Snowmen out of socks, and when Ella came over we made a gnome out of a sock, by using the YouTube video on how to make a gnome in 3 minutes.
My son, Mike, who lives here with me, turned 40 on New Year's Eve! He's here with Layla, my youngest son and daughter-in-law's dog. They left for Colorado with Harper and Hayden on the day after Christmas, and Mike took care of Layla.
Thank you for your visit! xo
