“What am I going to say about these cookies?”, I ask my husband.
“That they’re delicious? You could say that.”
These cookies are delicious.
These cookies, originally the creation of Pierre Hermé, legendary chocolatier, then adopted by Dorie Greenspan, are a dense chocolate sablé. Few ingredients and not a lot of fuss for a pretty fantastic payoff. This recipe, now widely circulated online, was publised in Dorie Greenspan’s ‘Baking: From My Home to Yours’, one of my most favourite baking books ever. I strongly encourage anyone who bakes to BUY THIS BOOK. It has never ever failed me, and any recipe I try gets rave reviews.
I can’t believe I waited so long to try this recipe. I hope you love it as much as we do.
