Sables = French shortbread cookies
As soon as I broke it down like this, I knew most of the cookies would be going in the freezer until the next time my mom visits. She's a shortbread freak and I wouldn't feel right not sharing.
But first, the cookies, picked this week by Bungalow Barbara. We've had a lot of cakes lately so a cookie sounded perfect! Plus, I just moved to a new apartment in a new city and started a new job. And helped my brother move. Lots of moving and decision made me squeak with delight when I saw how simple these Sables are. And squeak again at how delicious they are.
I opted for the spiced version with cinnamon, ginger, & cloves. There ain't no going back now! I want all my shortbread spiced!
My cookies came out a little crispy. I think the oven was too hot. Its the first time I've used it & now know it cooks hot hot hot. My last gas stove was the same way. Is it something about the gas as opposed to electric? Hmmm.
