Recipe: World Peace Chocolate Cookies

Yes, it finally happened. I finally got around to making the Dorie Greenspan World Peace cookies. They’ve been on my list for a good couple of years. In fact, I remember when the recipe was posted in Food52 – 2013. In other words, it’s taken me five years to get around to making this cookie recipe. But holy moly, they were so delicious – that I’m kicking myself for not having made them before! I didn’t follow the directions precisely so the instructions below are not from the goddess of baking herself. Regardless, still delicious.


  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 150 grams butter, room temperature
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 150 chocolate, chopped into chunks
  1. Start by mixing all of the dry ingredients in one bowl: a.k.a. your flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda and preheat your oven to 325F
  2. Then mix together your creamy ingredients in another bowl, beating your butter until creamy, whether you use your upper body body strength or a mixer – and adding in both brown and white sugar, then salt and then vanilla extract
  3. Slowly mix in the dry ingredients into the creamy bits. The mixture will seem kind of difficult and almost a bit crumbly, but in fact – this is the point
  4. Put in your chocolate chunks and mix to barely combine
  5. Take out a baking sheet or butter up a tray and make some chocolate cookie shapes – I think in total I had either 12 or 16 and they were balls of delicious chocolate noms.
  6. Cook for 12 minutes – take out (and they will seem not-done but they are, I promise)
  7. Take out and cool
  8. And yes, then you may eat them.
