Sablé Breton Cookies

Sablé Breton Cookies

Hello everyone!

{Spanish here}

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!
