When it comes to Christmas cookie recipes, it can be tough to play favorites. Sugar cookies are classic, and chocolate chip will always have my heart, but the cookies I really, really love are these citrus sablés. Like shortbread, sablés are rich and buttery, but have an airy crumb and melt-in-your-mouth texture that makes them really special. And this year I subbed out my usual lemon zest for the surprising flavors of satsuma orange and fresh cranberries, which lent a pleasant zing and flecks of festive color to these tasty sugar-trimmed cookies.
You know what else I like about these sablés? They’re roll cookies, so you can simply slice and bake. No dealing with rolling pins or cookie cutters!
