Remember that journey we took to San Francisco a few weeks ago? One of our favorite spots was the Ferry Building, more specifically Miette. I had been DYING to try out their goodies. Everything looked mouth-wateringly good. We sampled a few decadent macarons, ate cupcake and took a bag of the chocolate sable cookies for the road.
The cookies went untouched until Monday, when my need for chocolate peaked. I don’t know why I waited so long. These cookies are INSANE.
“Sable” is French for “sand”, which refers to the sandy texture of this delicate and crumbly shortbread-like cookie. In actuality, it’s just a fancy butter cookie. They are prefect for dipping and dunking and can baked in many sizes.
