  1. 150 g of butter at room temperature
  2.  100 g sugar
  3. vanilla
  4. 2 eggs
  5. 275 g flour
  6. 1/2 of tsp baking powder

Beat the butter and sugar until it is smooth and creamy. Add one egg and the vanilla until well blended.

Separately, whisk the dry ingredients: flour and the baking powder. Add to the butter mixture.

Divide the dough in two parts and, wrap and refrigerate for a couple of hours.

Preheat the oven at 180 degrees C.

Take one portion of the dough and place it on a floured surface. Roll out the dough until it is 4-7 mm thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut the sables and place them on a sheet, leaving space between them.

Whisk the left egg and brush the top of the cookies ( I sprinkled some brown sugar and sesame).

Bake the cookies until golden brown around edges.


Optionally, I filled in some cookies with caramelized condensed milk.
