TWD - Viennese Sables
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is Viennese Sables. I was a little hesitant, as Dorie's friend had described these biscuits as tasting like the Danish butter cookies that you get at Christmas - which I find to be pretty tasteless. However, these lovely little buttery biscuits were not like that at all - they were buttery and crisp and golden.
The recipe said that it made 24 biscuits. I am not sure how Dorie managed to get that many, as my biscuits were not very big and I only managed to get 11 out of the dough.
One of my piping bags ended up being collateral damage as it burst its seams when I tried to pipe the biscuits. I did struggle a little getting the dough to pipe - it was fairly robust. However, I am happy with the end result.
These are the kind of elegant little cookies that I envisage nibbling over tea with finely dressed ladies at a garden party or such like. However, I think you'd have to increase the recipe a fair bit to make enough of them for a party.
