      These are an elegant eggy cookie that needs to be worked quickly & kept chilled. I found the ones that were cut later a I went through the dough were not as texturally pleasing. Next time I'll use the old pastry cutter to cut in the dough to avoid any heat from machines. I will make again but break the dough into three disks (cutting one at a time) & keep a chilled plate to put my cutouts on to keep them chilled until baking. Their taste is wonderful! Thank you Chef Kate for a recipe that is worth the effort.

      Thanks for a great base recipe! I was looking for a plain sable I could add flavors to - this time I tried a tablespoon of miso paste, and it was great! I can't wait to try more.
