       Title: French Sables
  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 1 servings
     1/2 c  Butter; softened
     1/2 c  Sugar
       1    Egg yolk
       1 ts Pure vanilla extract
       1 c  Unbleached allpurpose flour
     1/4 ts Salt
       1    Egg; beaten
            Crystalline sugar; chopped
      Cream the butter and sugar. Add egg yolk and vanilla and beat
   thoroughly. Combine flour and salt. Add to the butter mixture and blend
   until the dough is smooth. On a very lightly floured surface, shape the
   dough into cylinders about 1 to 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in waxed paper
   or plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour. Preheat oven to 350
   degrees. Brush refrigerated logs with beaten egg and roll in crystalline
   sugar. With a sharp knife, slice the dough into rounds about 1/3-inch
      Place 1-inch apart on a parchment covered baking sheet. Bake for about
   10 minutes or until the cookies are slightly colored around the edges.
   Yield: approximately 4 dozen Sables
