Viennese Chocolate Sables

Viennese Chocolate Sable

These cookies have a fabulously light, melting texture… Sable cookies are a classic French cookie originating in Normandy.  The name Sable’ is  a French word for “sand”, which refer to the sandy texture of these delicate cookies. Thanks to  Rima  for a lovely cookies.


  • 260g All purpose flour
  • 1g Fleur De Sel
  • 30g Dutch processed cocoa powder – I used normal cocoa powder
  • 250g Butter
  • 100g Powder sugar, sifted
  • 3 tbsp Egg white

Lovely cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 180C
  2. Whisk together, flour and cocoa powder and set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk butter until creamy. To ensure that the recipe succeeds, the butter needs to be very soft.
  4. Add in powder sugar and fleur de sel to butter and continue to whisk until light and creamy.
  5. Whisk in egg white until it is well combined with butter cream.
  6. Add in (2) and mix until well combined.
  7. Spoon dough into a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe dough into W shaped cookies. ( I somehow can’t make a W shape… so I just make rosette shape he he he)
  8. Bake cookies at 180C for 10-12 mins – no more. The cookies will be delicate – transfer carefully into cookie jar after cooled.

May be next time will try and make a "W" shape... baru original...
