A Day with Sablé Breton…

Tried out my luck this afternoon with the world-famous Sablé Breton (French classic butter cookies) recipe from Bruno Albouze.  My husband told me that sablés were his dad’s favorite, “You know, these will go really well with some sablés…” his dad would say.  I did not know this until the cookies were just about done and I called hubby over to the kitchen for sampling.  He then shared how much his dad loved sablés…

On that note, it was comforting to know that my late father-in-law, papa Gerard might have been watching over me whilst I was testing my baking skills in the kitchen– he was probably giggling along the way, as well…witnessing those not-so-perfect ones I ended up tossing in the trash!

Here is the original recipe; I figured it may be easier for you to just follow it along.

And below are step-by-step photos to validate my kitchen play for today…enjoy!
