Satsuma Cranberry SablÃ©s: My Favorite Christmas CookieElizabeth Stark
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!
