The Technique

Chocolate-Almond Sablés

Chocolate-Almond Sablés are much like Diamond Sablés except they are filled with decadent chocolate flavor & use almond flour for a truly distinctive taste. Sablés are French butter cookies with an irresistible texture– short & crumbly yet a bit sandy as they are made with both granulated & powdered sugar. The dough may be formed into logs, chilled then sliced for baking or you may use my preferred method of cutting shapes from thinly rolled dough. This particular version features a simple heart garnish created from sliced almonds that may be added just before baking. Look for the instructions that follow. Learn how to make a classic French cookie in your very own kitchen perfect for Valentine’s Day & celebrations all throughout the year.

makes 4 dozen

1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1 egg yolk
1/4 tsp almond extract
3/4 cup all purpose flour
1/3 cup almond flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/4 tsp kosher salt
Granulated sugar

Cream the butter & the sugars on Medium speed with a stand mixer until light & airy, about 2 to 3 minutes. Stop the mixer occasionally & scrape down the sides of the bowl using a rubber spatula. Add the egg yolk & the almond extract. Mix the dough just until blended. Whisk together the all purpose flour, the almond flour & the salt in a small bowl. Add to the butter mixture & blend just until the dough comes together. Form the dough into a disc & wrap with plastic. Chill 30 minutes or up to 2 days.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Roll small portions of the dough to a 1/8-inch thickness on a lightly floured surface. Cut 1 3/4-inch round shapes from the dough & place 1-inch apart on parchment paper-lined half sheet pans. Re-roll the dough scraps & repeat the process. Sprinkle the dough surface with a bit of granulated sugar. Bake, in batches, on the center oven rack 16 minutes. Remove from the oven & sprinkle the surface with additional granulated sugar. Cool completely.
