When I go to lovely French Pastry shops here like La Gascogne..I often see their Sablé
Breton Cakes..I always find them so purely and simply beautiful..
Last week I came upon a recipe for one here..
I printed the recipe..and have been waiting ever since.. to make it..I had to wait until the fig and strawberry tart was almost finished..
My husband is the one that eats the desserts so I have to be patient:)
Monday.. I made it~
I even liked looking at it baking~
It's super rich.. but it's worth it~
You just slice a SLIVER..
There's only 1 tbsp of rhum:) I grabbed the first bottle I found..we like wine..have different things and liqueurs for the lovers of it~
For a 24 cm removable tart pan
250 g butter semi salted
250 g icing sugar
1 egg+ 1 egg yolk mixed with a bit of water
1 tbsp rhum
250 g of four
Cream room temp butter
add icing sugar and mix
add egg and rhum
pour flour in slowly funnel~ like and combine.. Spread in your tart pan that you have buttered and lined with parchment..
With the tines of a fork make the design on the top of the cake with the egg yolk that you mixed with the water.
Bake in a preheated 356 F oven for 35 mins.. let cool 10 mins.. remove from pan..
Let cool completely..
Then she suggest wrapping in a "torchon"..dishtowel and keep in a dry ...not bright space.
This is a keeper in my books..No flafla.. just pure goodness..and sheer beauty~
