|Secret Valentine Cookies|
Port Chocolate Sables
2 sticks (8 oz.) unsalted Butter
½ cup sugar
¼ cup confection sugar
½ tsp. salt
CREAM TOGETHER. Blend well , turn speed to LOW, then
2 large egg yolks
MIX in by hand:
½ cup chopped and frozen, chocolate (I used Jacques Torres’ Bin 27 Port Chocolate)
2 cups all purpose flour
Drape a towel over the mixer, so you don’t get flour everywhere
MIX on LOW until the flour disappears into the dough. Don’t overwork the dough.
Divide into 2 and roll into a 9 inch log. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Cut into ½ inch rounds, place on baking sheets, one inch apart, and bake for 17 – 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let the sables cool on the baking sheet before lifting them on to a rack.
Cool to room temperature.
Happy Valentine's Day Everyone
