Green Tea Sablés

We have made several sable recipes over the years from Baking Chez Moi and this will be our last. The basis of this cookie is like most; butter, sugar, flour, salt but the secret ingredient is green tea leaves. This recipe is different from the rest as it does not have an egg which made for tricky rolling into a log. The cookie dough is chilled before slicing and baking. I think the key to this recipe is fresh tea leaves which I did not have. It did not occur to me to check the expiration date (expired) before baking. Oh well, this is the season of using up what I have on hand and not buying new. I enjoyed these cookies very much, what’s not to like? To see what others thought head over to Tuesdays with Dorie.

The tea set belongs to my husband. I asked where he got it from and he said his grandmother. I asked if his grandmother went to Asia and he said “I don’t know”. It is the mystery tea set that I guess I should investigate.

  4. Your tea set is lovely, and your cookies perfect! I know what you mean about buying…I don’t have tea in the house and know we would never use the box if I buy it. Not sure I will be making these. Good to know they were delicious!

    Your mystery tea set is very pretty, as are your cookies. I found the tea flavour to be very subtle, even using fresh tea.
