Blogging Marathon# 59: Week 4/ Day 3
Theme: Holiday Bakes
Dish: Dorie Greenspan's World Peace Cookies
Hope all of you are having a good holiday weekend. Mine turned out to be busier than expected and I couldn't find time to type the posts that I planned for the weekend. These chocolate cookies were supposed to be posted yesterday but with my poor time management they are a day late :-(

I made these Chocolate chip cookies aka World Peace cookies by Dorie Greenspan twice this month. I sent a batch with my mom for my cousins in India and the second batch went to my son's school as a holiday treat. I kept a few home and left them out along with some chocolate-chip cookies for Santa on Christmas eve.

These eggless and great slice and bake cookies. Store the dough in the fridge for 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months and you can bake these whenever you want. They are slightly soft and taste very chocolaty and delicious. My sister said she eats them with some vanilla ice cream and I think I will try this combination next time :-)
