This is the basic, classic version of the sables cookie recipe. It can be varied in so many ways, from adding a flavored cream filling to spicing the batter. Make your own signature sable recipe or enjoy it the traditional way - as comforting vanilla sables.
Gather the ingredients.
In a medium bowl mix the flour and baking powder and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until smooth.
Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix in the dry ingredients until a smooth dough forms.
Form the dough into a disk shape or 2-inch diameter log.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 350 F.
Prepare the egg wash by beating together the egg white and 2 teaspoons of water.
Roll out the disk of dough to 1/4-inch thickness, and cut out the sables using a 2-inch fluted cookie cutter.
If using a log of cookie dough, slice it crosswise into 1/4-inch thick coins.
Brush the sables with the egg wash, and bake on a parchment lined baking sheet for 15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned around the edges.
Cool the sables for 2 minutes on the cookie sheet and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
