Cook:
10 min

Yield:
Approximately 4 dozen Sables

Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup unbleached allpurpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • Crystalline sugar, chopped
Directions
  • Cream the butter and sugar. Add egg yolk and vanilla and beat thoroughly. Combine flour and salt. Add to the butter mixture and blend until the dough is smooth. On a very lightly floured surface, shape the dough into cylinders about 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in waxed paper or plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush refrigerated logs with beaten egg and roll in crystalline sugar. With a sharp knife, slice the dough into rounds about 1/3-inch thick. Place 1-inch apart on a parchment covered baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cookies are slightly colored around the edges.
