In a food processor, combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and salt and process for 15 seconds, or until well mixed. Add the butter and egg white and process for about 20 seconds, or until the dough comes together in a lumpy mass. Remove the dough from the processor and shape into a 1 1/2 by 15-inch log. Refrigerate the dough for 45 minutes.


Preheat the oven to 375°F. Slice the dough 1/3 to 1/2 inch thick. Arrange the cookies in rows on the prepared sheet pan.


Bake for 20 minutes, or until firm but not hard. Let cool until set and then transfer to cooling racks, or let cool in the pan set on racks. Store tightly sealed in an airtight container for up to a week.

Cooks' note:
Unless you are using nonstick pans, line a sheet pan with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

These cookies are made with the same dough used to make sweet crusts for pies and tarts. It is very similar to the shortbread dough - it has the same marvelous tendency to turn instantly into crumbs in the mouth - except it contains an egg and an egg yolk. You can also use this dough to make checkerboard cookies, marbled cookies, spiral-patterned cookies, and cookies made with a cookie press.

These little cookies are great if you have trimmings of plain sablée and chocolate sablée left over. They indeed have a marbled appearance and combine the flavors of butter and chocolate in a nutty crumbly cookie.
