Well, I finally made the time to try one version of a sable cookie recipe. This version is from the Joy of Cooking. I am really curious to see how they turn out this afternoon.
I did my big experiment- making my own powdered sugar- one cup of granulated sugar with one teaspoon of corn starch... oooh what a mess!! Next time I better do this in a regular blender and not use the hand held blender. It was pretty funny to see clouds of corn starch and sugar, floating around me.
This is the recipe that I am testing and going to make with my students this week. Boy, I hope that they turn out.
The next version is going to be a more authentic version called punitions. They are not quite as sweet as these.
