Sablés au chocolat

DSC_0001 One of my friends made gorgeous ‘sablés au chocolat’ when I visited her recently. The original recipe is from Jacques Génin, a famous french chocolatier and pâtissier.

Nothing else to add … just to try to make some: if you are a chocolate addict, it will be a delight!

The recipe:

  • 250 g  flour
  • 200 g butter
  • 150 g confectioner’s sugar
  • 100 g dark chocolate
  • 30 g cocoa powder
  • 5 g “fleur de sel”
  • 1 egg and 1 egg yolk

One day before:

  1. Melt the chocolate.
  2. In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, cocoa and salt. Add butter cut in dice and crumble all these ingredients with your hands.
  3. Add the melted chocolate, the egg yolk and the egg.
  4. On a floured surface, break the dough into three pieces and roll each into a log shape 1” in diameter.
  5. Place in the refrigerator to chill overnight.

The day you bake:

  1. Preheat the oven at 350° F.
  2. Roll  the log in sugar.
  3. Cut log into ½” thick slices and place on a parchment-lined tray.
  4. Bake for 6/7 minutes. Let them cool on the tray .DSC_0007
