Perfect Bake® recipe

Sables au The

These small sablés are flavored with Earl Grey tea, but feel free to experiment with your own favorite varieties. Just be aware that some, such as smoked teas, can be overpowering, so you will want to reduce the quantity of tea accordingly, or omit the sprinkling of additional tea over the glaze. As their key ingredient indicates, these sablés are the most perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea.
