Have you ever tasted Sablé Breton cookies? They are perfect for tea time, a delicious crunchy and sandy texture that melts in your mouth. Are you interested yet?
And, as a plus, the recipe is super easy. They are made with the same sablé dough of the cherry meringue tart recipe that I posted a few weeks ago. Very easy, I promise.
Moreover, you will not need any fancy ingredients, or strange utensils. You will not even need a cookie cutter! Just a kinfe. Can it be any easier?
Sablé Breton Cookies
- 250g flour
- 140g butter, cubed
- 100g sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 egg
- salt flakes
- Sift flour in a big bowl. Add cubed butter and sugar, and knead with your fingers until the butter is completely incorporated.
- Add the egg yolk and knead until smooth.
- Roll the dough into a cilinder and wrap in plastic. Let it sit for 2 hours in the fridge.
- Heat the oven at 175ºC(350ºF).
- Slice the cookies, 1cm thick, and place in a baking pan covered with baking paper. With a fork, make a crossing pattern by pressing the tines in the middle of the cookie.
- Beat the egg and paint the cookies. Put some salt flakes on each one of them.
- Bake for 15 minutes, up until golden.
That's it! I hope you liked them!
