Little French Delights~

Sablés Nantais~

I love all the French butter cookies..I love all the English butter cookies..:)

But these caught my eye at a very rich in content fabulous food blog here....a Gourmand site

All her recipes seem delicious and this little cookie is no exception I am certain..
I love the fact that it looks so French..tastes so French ..and the Egg wash incorporates Caramel.I had never done that.
The recipe is simple with some regular flour and self rising..half and half..

It has butter..sugar and eggs..
And they are perfect for my Provençal Nantes Trivet.

A little bit of sunshine~

    Love the beautiful glaze, and I am certain I can almost smell the heavenly buttery aroma. Beau!!


  3. Monique,
    These look so, so good. I had to giggle to myself about the so french comment. I agree whole-heartedly, everything tastes, looks and feels better when it's french! My husband's off for all next week so I'm hoping he may make these for me while he's on vacation. I will have to double my walking time though with all the dishes I have planned to try!
    I'm so glad you were able to see Paul Potts. Someone forwarded one of his videos to me and he is fantastic! Happy night, off to catch up on what I missed this week in your world. xo~Tracie
