espresso chocolate sablés

I feel like I may be over-using this metal cookie tin is as a prop, but it’s a real-like look into what I’m keeping around for sweet snacks…lift off the lid right now, and you’ll see Espresso Chocolate Sablés. Dorie’s sablés are always winners, and when they’re flavored with my two favorite things (espresso and chopped chocolate), I wonder why we’ve waited so long to make them! Well, they are pretty similar to the Espresso-Chocolate Shortbread Cookies from BFMHTY, but heck, that post was in 2010.

These make me think of the McDonald’s chocolaty chip cookies that came in a little box and were such a treat when I was a kid. Today, those probably wouldn’t actually taste anything like they do in my memory, but I can’t check that because it seems they don’t even sell them anymore. I am totally dating myself with rosy memories of fast food cookies from the ’80s, but the point is that I really liked these sablés, and they should pop up in the tin on the regular.

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

  1. I love the tin…it reminds me of growing up when everyone used those tins for cookies and you knew when you visited somewhere and those tins came out that there would be cookies!! And most often, it seemed like I could count on certain cookies coming out of certain tins. So…I smile every time I see that tin of yours. Your cookies look really beautiful resting in there. McDonald’s used to sell cookies in boxes? Wow…I didn’t know that…but I mentioned it to Mark and he knew all about it. Late to the party, always…and now they don’t make them! Nice post and beautiful photo. It’s why I show up here every week.

    • I’m totally not surprised mickey d’s chocolate chippers weren’t on your radar, but also not surprised mark knew them! hahaha

      • Well, yes, now that I think of it…that’s probably why they didn’t register. lol

  2. These were yummy. I don’t remember those cookies from McDonalds but I will have to ask my family.

  3. I love your tin…and those very chocolatey looking cookies! I like the ratio there haha. My husband and I remember the cookies at McDonald’s! 😍

  4. I love the tin too! And I totally remember those cookies and cannot wait to make these in anticipation of that memory!!
