Around My French Table offers many gifts one is a buttery confection from Normandy. Right there on page 406 you will find her recipe for Cocoa Sablés. Dorie Greenspan makes this magnanimous cookie a masterpiece. The tome Sable comes from their sandy texture, so reminscent of the beaches along the Norman coast.
Chocolate cookies - some days you really have to take one for the team. To make mine gluten free, I used almond, arrowroot and brown rice flours, and a little less soy butter than the original recipe called for. While there seemed to be a lot of steps, the recipe is straight forward and easy to do. Having some cookie dough in the freezer ready to cut and bake is a revelation, Pilsbury obviously thought so.
