Sablés are popular French shortbread cookies that originated in Sablé-sur-Sarthe in Sarthe (Northwest of France). I thought it would be fun to make Halloween French sablés cookies. That way, you can enjoy both the deliciousness of French sablés cookies, and the Halloween fun!
The recipe for French sablés filled with jelly can be found in French here. (Note, I made a few minor changes to it). I chose to fill the sablés with apricot jelly for the orange color. I used a pumpkin cookie cutter to make pumpkins, and a round cookie cutter to make jack-o-lantern faces. You can use any cookie cutter you want. There are so many fun Halloween cookie cutters! If you don’t have a cookie cutter, you can just use an upside-down glass to make a round imprint for jack-o-lantern faces. Have fun making these cookies!
Happy Halloween, and Bon Appétit!
