irresistible sablé aux abricots


sable aux abricotsSablé (a french word meaning sand), is a shortbread biscuit. It’s called “sablé” because of the sandy texture you get when you rub the butter, flour and sugar together before adding the eggs.

These delicious sablés are filled with homemade apricot jam and flavoured with lemon zest. Simply irresistible!

They are so tempting that am sure you’re going to the kitchen the minute you finish reading the ingredients.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 250g butter
  • 2 whole eggs
  • 2 tbsp powdered milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • zest of one lemon

Method:

Mix butter, flour and sugar, and rub them until they become like sand. Add the eggs one by one then powdered milk, vanilla and lemon zest. Mix well until you get a consistent dough. I recommend to put it for half an hour in the fridge before shaping the rounds (5mm thickness). Don’t forget to make equal number of rounds with a hole in the middle for the upper part. Place them on a parchment paper and bake for 15-20 mns on 175°C.

P.S: For the people who don’t have the cutters, they can use a glass cup to cut the big circles and the cap of a bottle of water to make the hole on the upper one.

When they cool down to room temperature fill them with any jam of your preference, i used apricot jam that my mom made, then sprinkle icing sugar (or powdered sugar) on the top.
