Little sablés ..but different from my other stamps..as I did here..or the ones that you can change the name.. like we did with the Brigitte Cookie cutter..or the Williams Sonoma ones~or the HOME MADE ones:)
This one..comes in a small adorable package.. with the stamp(tampon)..and a mini cookbook for what they say are "La Vraie Recette De Sablés~"
2 days after ordering..Amazon.ca (Français),had delivered it to my door with my 2013 Mary Engelbreight Calendar~
Top quality..Hachette/Marabout 2012.
Un coup de ♥ for me..
Above..the first recipe sitting on our friend's foto of the Eiffel tower:)are 3 of the Pink ones I made..they were supposed to have lemon curd sandwiched in between..but we just wanted sablés~
They are good..
I made 1/3 of the recipe..and I could have used far less red coloring..but they looked so rose bonbon..I decided they would work..
very good with a cup of Gunpowder Green Tea~
We are hooked on green tea in the AM..
A cup of Nespresso at our daughter's in the afternoon w/ the rich foam..is equally as good..if not better:)
So here is the recipe I used from the wee book that comes with the stamp:
170 g almond flour
120 g sugar
3 egg yolks
8 drops of red coloring
1 cuillère à café of baking powder(I use tsp as the equivalence..but you will find many definitions:)
1 pinch of salt..
Mix all the dry ingredients..then add the butter(chopped) and rub with your fingers ..to combine all..quickly add the yolks and red coloring..combine until you form a supple dough..
Roll dough out between parchment paper to 3-4 mm thickness..
Refrigerate at least 1 hr..
Preheat oven to 180 Celcius..
Now..here's what I did..I pressed my tampon(well floured..never greased)..into the very chilled dough....then cut around w/ a round cookie cutter the size ..more here..of the tampon:)..then chilled again..before baking for 10-13 mins..they crisp up after baking:)
There are 5 little recipes in the mini book..
I am sure I will make all 5..and more that I can find on the net..
the 1/3 recipe made at least 10~
Love these little "trucs" as we say..
