Well on a rainy weekend I mostly spend my time at home!

Nothing much to do, so why not get the cooking rolling. I’ve been wanting to try a couple of cookie recipes that might work for Christmas.

I tried one on Saturday and one today; check them out. Do you like them?

Sable with Chocolate and Halawa

I love to prepare sable at home. One day I had leftovers of chocolate and halawa in my fridge. So the idea crossed my mind! Why not prepare Sable with a Lebanese twist using our artistic halawa, and it turned out to be the best combination ever.

Sable with Halva

Preparation mode: Baking
Preparation time: 45 minutes
Cooking time: 10 minutes
Number of people: 70 pieces

Sable with halawa
Ingredients

750g Sable Dough
200g Halawa, cut into small cubes
200g Dark Chocolate Chips
100g Pistachio, crushed

Preparation method

1-    From the dough into round sable cookies and bake for 10 minutes
2-    Meanwhile, cut the halawa into small cubes and melt the chocolate chips in bain marie or in the microwave.
3-    As soon as the sable dough are ready, remove and press in the halawa cubes (the halawa will stick on the hot dough)
4-    Keep to cool for 5 minutes
5-    Cover each sable with melted dark chocolate
6-    Decorate with crushed pistachio nuts
7-    Cool and serve.
Personal tips: Add the halawa cubes directly after the sable cookies are removed from the oven. The sable needs to be hot so the halawa can stick well.

This recipe appeared in the book “Recette De Vie”, which was launched to 2014 to support women and children charities.
