Sablés are sometimes called French butter cookies. The name 'Sablé' is French for "sand", which refers to the sandy texture of this delicate and crumbly shortbread-like cookie. The cookie originated in Normandy hence the 'normandes'. 'À la cannelle' means literally "has cinnamon". So these are Cinnamon Cookies, and they are delicious!
Hard-boiled eggs-Contrary to popular belief eggs should never be boiled they should instead be "simmered" for 12-15 minutes depending on the size of the egg
Mixing-I highly suggest mixing using your hands, this will melt the butter and allow the mix to become dough
Buttered Baking Sheet: Yes, you need to use real butter NOT cooking spray
Rolling: I have gotten away with rolling individual balls and flattening them with a cup bottom but if you have time I suggest rolling them out
These are some of my favorite cookies and they tend to disappear fast so I always make double. Plus these cookies can be made into any shape so they are great for holidays!
