the blood-orange's brand of creepy sunshine,
I will be happy to share with you some cookies
I received in my in-box this morning
from our friend Monsieur Pierre Hermé!
(The first thing to know is that a sablé is a beautiful butter cookie,
topped in sugar to resemble the sablé, or sand)
May I offer you...
Sablés Infiniment Chocolat
(Infinite Chocolate Sablé)
Sablés Diamante Vanille
(Diamond Vanilla Sablé)
(sablée dough, garnished with chestnut-blossom honey,
orange confit and slivered almonds)
(Glazed flakey pastry, twisted, crusty and caramelized with sugar.
"A greediness to nibble constantly all day.", to quote him!
Who are we to refuse?)
If you are wandering by his shops,
he offers them in the Coffret Croquant (The Crunching Box)
Coffret Craquant (The Cracking Box).
"Miam", as one would say!
And now for your tea to go with them....
Wishing you a warm and delicious day!
