Biscuit Sablé/Eggless French Shortbread Biscuits

For this month Home Bakers Challenge Priya chose popular French bakes and wanted to try the baguette but due to lots of work I couldn't.
Sables are melt in mouth crispy short bread cookies which is easy to make and its an egg less recipe too.As I had one stick of butter I halved the measurement and made.I used a small square cookie cutter and a round flower shaped,you can use any shape and make the cookies.Now off to the recipe...........................

Basic Information

  • Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy and fluffy.Add in the vanilla extract,milk or water, beat for few minutes.
  • Now add the flour and salt, mix well and make a smooth dough.Divide the dough to two portions and roll each portion of the dough between two ungreased baking sheets and flatten slowly with a rolling pin.
  • Using a cookie cutter,cut the cookies from the rolled dough.With the help of a sharp spatula take the cookies and place it on a baking tray.
