Aren't those little flecks atop the sable one of the cutest thing ever?



Three reasons on why I ended up making this easy savoury cheese sable:

1. There was a wedge of Danish Gouda in the fridge almost nearing its recommended shelf-life.
2. It was a Saturday weekend perfect for binge-eating.
3. I wanted some cheese biscuits.

The recipe may seem very daunting at first but I assure you that it is one of the easiest recipes for your afternoon savoury snack craving. Depending on how you slice them, this recipe yields 30-50 cheese sables.

Ingredients
100 g plain all purpose flour
100 g unsalted butter, softened
100 g strong hard cheese, finely grated
1 egg
Pinch of cayenne/mustard powder (optional)

Method
1. In a food processor, blend the flour, butter, cheese, egg yolk and cayenne (if using) until a dough is formed.

2. Shape the dough into a log* about 4 cm (1 ½ inch) in diameter. Wrap in cling-film (plastic wrap) and allow to chill for 1-2 hours or until very firm.

3. Line 2 baking trays (pans) with parchment paper.

4. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F. Using a very sharp knife, cut off thin rounds and place onto the prepared trays (pans), repeat as necessary^.

5. Place the trays (pans) into the middle of the oven and bake for 10 minutes or until lightly brown and crisp. Allow to cool on the tray (pan) for 5 minutes before using a spatula to transfer them onto a cooling rack. Allow to cool before enjoying!
