And so here we go- more cookies. Sweet buttery goodness, cute innocent shaped sables made from a fantastic base recipe that can lead to infinite variations. I went for orange-poppy seeds & caramel-with-a-pinch-of-salt.
Nothing better then a sable with a cuppa tea to comfort us throughout this unbearable winter cold....
Creamy butter with chunky orange zest... sinful, so wrong but so good!
Finally- the poppy seeds I brought back from Budapest came to use! (did I tell you that poppy seeds were all over the place in Budapest?)
I like that the orange zest was chunky
DONE! Fragrant crunchy delicious orange-poppy seed sables!
That's not it... at 2 in the morning (yes you read right- 2 in the morning!) I went down to the kitchen and got back to baking- salted caramel this time! Afterhours baking is the best :)
Base recipe for sables- just 3 ingredients & no eggs!
makes approx 20 sables
180g butter, softened
80g icing sugar
Preheat oven to 160C
Whisk butter with icing sugar until creamy. Add the flour until crumbly, then mix by hand to form a consistent cookie dough texture. Roll out, cut out shapes and place on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Bake for 15 mins. Remove and let cool.
For orange-poppy seed:
add 2 teaspoons of orange zest into the butter & sugar.
add 1 tablespoon of poppy seeds with the flour
add 3 tablespoons of caramel sauce into the butter & sugar
add 1/2 teaspoon salt with the flour (taste if you feel you want more saltiness)
