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
- Preheat oven to 180C
- Whisk together, flour and cocoa powder and set aside.
- In a mixing bowl, whisk butter until creamy. To ensure that the recipe succeeds, the butter needs to be very soft.
- Add in powder sugar and fleur de sel to butter and continue to whisk until light and creamy.
- Whisk in egg white until it is well combined with butter cream.
- Add in (2) and mix until well combined.
- 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)
- Bake cookies at 180C for 10-12 mins – no more. The cookies will be delicate – transfer carefully into cookie jar after cooled.
