Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, chocolate sable cookies are the ultimate chocolate cookie! (And they’re perfect for keeping dough on hand to have your chocolate craving satisfied in 15 minutes flat!)
What are sable cookies? Sable cookies are basically France’s version of a shortbread cookie, also called a butter cookie. These easy to make cookies are of the slice-and-bake variety. They are as popular in France as Chocolate Chip cookies are in North America. The name Sable means sand in French, which refers to the sandy texture of these tender and crumbly cookies. With a triple dark chocolate flavoring, these are a taste of heaven with a shot of espresso.
1 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
⅓ c cocoa powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
4 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped to fine bits
8 Tbsp unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup sugar
½ tsp vanilla
1.Sift flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt. Mix in chocolate bits.
2.In another bowl, beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg, beat until creamy.
3.Add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until combined. Bring the dough together by lightly squeezing it with your hands. Divide the dough in half.
4.Place half the dough on a sheet of waxed paper and press into a log, roughly 1 inch in diameter by roughly 8 inches long. Repeat with remaining dough. Place the rolls in an air-tight container or bag and refrigerate for 3 hours (up to 3 days).*
5.When you are ready to bake your cookies, preheat oven to 190C.
6.Slice the cold logs into 1/2-inch thick rounds and place the cookie rounds on baking sheets lined with parchment paper, spaced with 1 inch in between the cookies. (You will get roughly 15 slices out of a log.)
7.Bake until the cookies are set on the outside, about 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5-10 minutes. Then, transfer cookies to a rack to cool completely.
Store in an airtight container for 1 week. (If they last that long.)
*To Freeze: You can freeze the dough roll in an air-tight container for up to 2 months. When you are ready to bake the cookies, you don’t need to defrost the dough. Simply slice cookies from the frozen roll, and bake the cookies 1 min longer than stated above.
