I haven't baked much since moving to Brooklyn, as my electric convection oven makes me crazy and I keep burning the bottom of everything - only the bottom element comes on when baking and it typically gets way too hot.
I was feeling inspired after a co-worker brought in some lovely chocolate biscotti with mini chocolate chips yesterday (thanks Diana!). They were just sweet enough and not too sweet for being double chocolate. It made me think of a Dorie Greenspan recipe I remembered reading a little while back for her World Peace cookies that were based on French chocolate sables - they weren't on her website so I started looking at several different recipes for chocolate sables, basically a chocolate shortbread cookie, and this is what I came up with - they turned out great and the salt is so perfect!
I made these delicate cookies with King Arthur white whole wheat flour since I only buy whole wheat or this white whole wheat flour. I also don't like my sweets too sweet so this recipe reflects my tastes, but if you want to go a little sweeter, you can up the sugar a little bit. And I've always loved peanut butter cookies that were a little more salty so thought I would do a little sprinkle of fleur de sel on top for a little extra salt kick - and they look great too!
