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.

Sablée Cookies


Roll the dough into logs, wrap in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Sablée Cookies


Slice the log into 1/3-inch-thick disks and bake until barely brown.

Cooks' note:
Cut the dough in half. On a floured work surface, roll half of the dough into a 1 1/2 by 8-inch log, using the palms of your hands. Repeat with the remaining dough. Wrap the logs separately in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. If you're not using the dough right away, keep it tightly wrapped in the refrigerator or freezer. It will keep in the refrigerator for about 3 days and in the freezer for about 3 months.
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Unless you are using nonstick pans, line 2 sheet pans with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.
Slice the cylinders into 1/3-inch-thick rounds and arrange them on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 1/2 inch apart. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until a barely perceptible browning is visible on the edges of the cookies. Transfer to a cooling rack or let cool in the pans set on racks. Store tightly sealed in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
