TWD: World Peace Cookies

If everyone in the world could eat these cookies, we would most definitely have world peace! This is positively my favorite TWD recipe so far! Thank you Jessica of Cookbookhabit (check out Jessica's blog for the complete recipe)!!

I knew this recipe would be a hit when I realized it was of the shortbread family! What's better than a cookie with so much butter?

The secret ingredient to these cookies is supposedly sea salt; however, I had a quiet moment Sunday afternoon and decided to make them without the sea salt (I hadn't gone grocery shopping yet!). I loved the cookies, but will definitely make them again using the secret ingredient!

In the P&Q's many people commented they had problems with their dough being crumbly, but I didn't find this to be problematic at all. The dough is definitely a different texture than the average cookie, but it rolled up just fine, sliced well, and baked perfectly. The only problem I had with my cookies...I ate too many of them! What does everyone say they want in life? World peace...cookies!

I made these for our Sunday treat this weekend and had a hard time staying away from them Monday morning.
