If there is to be peace in the world,
There must be peace in the nations.
If there is to be peace in the nations,
There must be peace in the cities.
If there is to be peace in the cities,
There must be peace between neighbors.
If there is to be peace between neighbors,
There must be peace in the home.
If there is to be peace in the home,
There must be peace in the heart.
-- Lao Tzu (570-490 B.C.)
The ingredients for peace in the heart and home?
This week, Jessica, of cookbookhabit chose Dorie's World Peace Cookies, on page 139-139 of Baking, From My Home To Yours.
I made the first batch to the letter of the recipe.
For the second batch, I added a little sprinkle of sugar and salt on top. I have these salt flakes that are pyramid shaped, so I thought it would be an attractive and tasty accent.
Some of the bigger pyramids were a bit much, but all and all, I would say this is a perfect plate of cookies.
