Let’s just get it out in the open…I stink at slice and bakes! This sable dough was easy to whip together…it’s the rolling and cutting that gave me a headache. Mine did not keep their a nice round shape…due to the warm weather, the dough was soft enough before refrigeration to develop a flat side after being rolled into logs. And then those tiny bits of semi-sweet chocolate interfered with a clean cut. The top photo shows a prettier result after taking the leftover dough and rolling it into balls. Bill was delighted with the scent of these baking in the oven and preferred the plain cookies over my jazzed up versions. I made a white chocolate ganache to sandwich between these chocolate disks and drizzle over a few of my misshapen cookies. I sent a container of these with my oldest to a St. Patty’s Day party…his friends requested some of his mom’s treats…and none came home. I took one bite…eh, they were OK…I much preferred the drips of ganache left on the baking sheet.
This recipe can be found in Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table.
I will be on spring break most of next week. I’ll check in with you all when we return. Till then, happy baking!
