mint chocolate sablés

I’d say that the first of December marks the start of cookie season, but isn’t it always cookie season around here? I’ll just put a more festive spin on things this month, starting with these Mint Chocolate Sablés. We make this type of buttery French shortbread on the regular, but this particular sablé has a chocolate base jazzed up with mint oil or extract and little bits of chopped chocolate. Chocolate and mint is a pretty winning combo in my books. If it had occurred to me in advance, I would have bought a nice mint chocolate bar to cut up for the added bits, but, as per usual, my best ideas happen just as I’m about to put something in the oven. These are really good anyway, and I could actually smell their minty-ness while baking…I did add some gold glitter sugar for sparkle, so there’s that. I’m having a cookie tonight with vanilla ice cream and am very much looking forward to it.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll.

  1. These look good – I cannot wait to make them!

  2. These cookies look so good, and choc mint is a winning combination. Perhaps Peppermint Crisp pieces would be good in these!

  3. Mint, chocolate and ice cream, what could be better? I look forward to these.

    • I couldn’t agree with your more haha!

  4. Winning combo for sure…I admire your ability to wait until evening to have a cookie with ice cream haha. I am one who has to taste it after I bake it :). Love yours with the added sparkle!
