Vanilla Bean Sable Cookies


It’s late August, do you know what that means? In our house it means someone’s birthday is just about 2 months away and I start brainstorming her birthday party! And this year she’s turning —- 2, 2! 2 sounds so grown up. I can’t believe she is so big…sigh.  Back to the party though – our Z isn’t really into sweets so I was thinking of a less-sweet cookie for her to serve alongside a birthday cake.

I don’t know about you, but I love a slightly sweet, slightly salty, buttery cookie and, as suspected, so does my Z. I saw this recipe for Vanilla-Bean Sable Cookies on Pinterest recently and knew we had to try them out. I made a batch last week for a trial run and they came out great so I wanted to share with you.


I followed the recipe to a T including making the vanilla sugar…



Mixing the butter with sugars and egg yolk…



And rolling the dough into logs and fridge-ing overnight.



Then, I did my own décor and rolled the dough in colorful non-pareils. Coat the chilled dough in egg wash and roll it in your choice of sprinkle or sanding sugar (as the original recipe calls for).



Cut, bake….






Aren’t these cute? And perfect for a second birthday party!
