This sablé dough is one of my favorites, and I often use it as the basis for savory cookies. The crunchiness of the pastry and melt-in-your-mouth creaminess of the cheese make a fantastic combination. Don’t omit the Kashkaval cheese if at all possible – it gives the cheese topping a delicious, tangy flavor.   Yield: 36 pieces

Ingredients

Sablé Dough

  • 3/4 cup (160 grams) cold butter, cut into cubes

  • 3 and 1/2 ounces (100 grams) almond flour

  • 3 and 1/2 ounces (100 grams) all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 2 egg yolks or 1 large egg

  • 3 and 1/2 ounces (100 grams) grated Parmesan cheese, or any yellow cheese

Cheese Topping

  • 5 ounces (150 grams) mascarpone cheese or cream cheese

  • 3 and 1/2 ounces (100 grams) farmer’s cheese

  • 5 ounces (150 grams) Kashkaval cheese (if you can’t find Kashkaval, substitute feta cheese such as Ta’amti)

  • microgreens, to garnish

Directions

Prepare the Sablé Discs

1.

In a food processor, combine butter, almond flour, all-purpose flour, Parmesan, and salt until a crumbly mixture forms.

2.

Add egg yolks and process to form a dough.

3.

Refrigerate dough about two hours.

4.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

5.

On a floured surface, roll out dough to about one-third inch (one centimeter) thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut discs that are one and a half inches (four centimeters) in diameter.

6.

Place discs on the prepared baking sheet. Bake about 15 minutes, until golden.

Tips:

I highly recommend weighing your ingredients for this recipe. If you do not own a digital scale, three and a half ounces of almond flour is about one cup plus one tablespoon. Three and a half ounces of all-purpose flour is about three-quarters of a cup plus one tablespoon.

Prepare the Cheese Topping

1.

In a food processor, combine mascarpone, farmer’s cheese, and Kashkaval until smooth and creamy.

Assemble

1.

Transfer cheese topping to a piping bag fitted with a round tip.

2.

Pipe onto the baked sablé discs.

3.

Garnish with microgreens.
