Orange and Pistachio Sable


Sables are one of my favorite types of cookies. This is a great flavor combination thanks to Pamela’s Products. 


215 g flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
227 g unsalted butter
95 g powdered sugar
1 egg white
1 tsp vanilla
zest of one orange
65 g chopped and roasted pistachios


Whisk together flour and salt and put aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add vanilla and orange zest and mix well.  At low speed, mix in egg white.  Add dry ingredients in three portions mixing on low speed scraping down sides in between additions. Add nuts and mix into dough.

Scrape out dough onto a piece of plastic wrap sprayed with non-stick spray. Shape into a log approximately 12″x12″x2″. Refrigerate for approximately 1-2 hours.  Smoothsides and clean up the shape.  Warp again and leave overnight.

In the morning, unwrap and roll in decorative sugar gently pressing it into the dough. Wrap again and chill for another hour or so.

Preheat oven to 325 F.  Slice dough into 1/4″ slices and place on to cookie sheet lined with parchment or silpat. Bake for 15-17 minutes. Let cool before moving to wire rack.
