Pierre Herme’s Sable Viennois – Danish Butter cookies

I saw these beautiful cookies in Nisha’s blog and then navigated to Shirley’s from there. Loved these beautiful looking easily made cookies and gave a shot. Believe me it was a super hit here.

These beautiful cookies reminded me of the blue colour cookie box from Dubai. The taste was not that perfect as that, but yeah they were yummy.

Here comes that wonderful recipe.

Ingredients(Yields around 40 cookies):

All purpose flour           --  1 cup
Unsalted Butter              --  7 tbsp
Salt                                       --  a pinch -  Original recipe calls for Fleur de Sel
Vanilla essence              --  1 tsp
Powdered Sugar            --  1/3 cup
Egg White                         -- 1

Preparation of cookies:

Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 350F.

Whisk the butter and salt until light and fluffy. Add the powdered sugar and beat sugar mix well and the mixture is creamy.

Add egg white followed by vanilla essence; as Shirley said,the mixture may curdle a little but it will smoothen out after flour is added. Now add the flour and mix until well blended.

Scoop batter into a piping bag with a star tip. Pipe circles on to the prepared tray.
