My Neighbor makes the best, crunchiest, most delicate sable cookies ever. She finally got bored of me asking for the recipe and gave it to me. This recipes is the most forgiving recipe of all times; what ever you do to them they come out delicious. The same recipe makes both the chocolate and vanilla cookies. You can make both cookies from one batch but I am not good at splitting recipes, so that’s on you.

Vanilla version : ⁣⁣
1 3/4 cup (400 g) butter⁣⁣
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar ⁣⁣
2 eggs⁣⁣
1/2 teaspoon vanilla ⁣⁣
6-7 cups flour ⁣⁣
1/2 cup jam of choice ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
⁣⁣Chocolate version: ⁣⁣
⁣⁣1 3/4 cup (400 g) butter⁣⁣
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar ⁣⁣
2 eggs⁣⁣
1/2 teaspoon vanilla ⁣⁣
1/2 cup cocoa powder ⁣⁣
6 to 6 1/2 cups of flour⁣⁣
1/2 cup melted milk chocolate ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Preheat the oven to 350° (180C). ⁣⁣
The butter must be at room temperature.

 ⁣⁣Place the butter and powdered sugar in a bowl and mix with your hands. ⁣⁣Add the eggs and vanilla and keep mixing until the mixture resembles mayonnaise. ⁣⁣

Start incorporating the flour one cup at a time until you reach six cups. If at six cups the mixture holds it’s shape and is no longer sticky, stop there. If it’s still a little sticky, keep adding flour until it’s a dough you can roll out. Sometimes you might need the full 7 cups. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣

*Chocolate version: add the cocoa powder before the flour. ⁣⁣

⁣⁣Cut into four pieces and roll each piece of dough out between two pieces of thick plastic. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣Peel off the top layer of plastic and cut into small circles or any other shape that sparks joy within you. Gather all the bits and pieces left over, roll out again, and cut into shapes once again. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣

Exactly half the cookies get an extra little hole in the center. ⁣⁣
Gently place the cookies on a baking tray, no need for parchment. ⁣⁣
If you’re making both the chocolate and vanilla version, make sure the tray has both vanilla and chocolate on it as it is easier to check doneness from the vanilla cookies. ⁣⁣

Bake the cookies in the preheated oven for about 10 minutes. ⁣⁣
Every oven is different so check the cookies after about eight minutes they should be slightly golden brown underneath. ⁣⁣
Once you remove the cookies from the oven they might still be a little soft, that’s OK they will harden up once they cool down. ⁣⁣


⁣⁣
Vanilla version: Place the cookies with the hole in them on a baking tray and dust with powdered sugar.

Place a dollop of your jam of choice in the middle of the bottom cookie and assemble. ⁣⁣

Chocolate version: Melt the milk chocolate over a double boiler.

Place a small dollop on the bottom cookie and top.
