Sablé biscuits

Sablé biscuits are French shortbread cookies, originally from Sablé-sur-Sarthe. 

They were presented by the Marquise de Sablé de Sourthe to the brother of King Louis XIV, who gave them the name of "petits sablés". 

They are made in an instant and quickly baked. Very fun to make with the kids. 

The most difficult part is to resist the temptation to eat them before they have completely cooled.
