TWD: Lime Sablés
First, a warning. These are dangerous cookies. Delicious, but dangerous, and not from a calorie point-of-view either.
These cookies can draw blood, as evidenced by the fact that one of the sparkling sugar bits sliced open the tip of my tongue last night.
Danger aside, these cookies can be made in a variety of flavors and are easy to make and bake at a moment's notice. I chose lime because it's a favorite flavor and I had fresh limes from my tree. The spice variety was tempting as well, so that will be next on the list.
If you want to give these French shortbread cookies a try, go to Barbara's blog, where you will find the recipe along with some great cookie-making tips. If you want ideas for flavor variations, check out the other bakers on the TWD blog.
