Pierre Herme's Vienesse Chocolate Sables

I managed to try a few new recipes for my raya bakings. One of them was Pierre Herme's Vienesse Chocolate Sables. I must admit that the main reason I chose this cookie was because it's so simple & fast to bake. I also wanted something chocolaty but without having to dip the cookies into melted chocolate. This one just needed cocoa powder in the dough... So it made perfect cookies to bake for a busy me!

Pierre Herme's Vienesse Chocolate Sables

260g all purpose flour
30g Dutch processed cocoa powder (I used Valrhona.)
250g butter
100g powder sugar, sifted
a pinch of salt
3 tbsp egg white

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.
  2. Whisk together, flour and cocoa powder and set aside.
  3. In a mixing bowl, whisk butter until creamy. To ensure that the recipe succeeds, the butter needs to be very soft. 
  4. Add in powder sugar and salt to butter and continue to whisk until light and creamy.
  5. Whisk in egg white until it is well combined with butter cream.
  6. Add in flour & cocoa powder, mix until well combined.
  7. Spoon dough into a piping bag fitted with a star tip. Pipe dough into W shaped cookies. (I just piped into a star, just like Dahlia cookies.)
  8. Bake cookies at 180C for 10-12 mins - no more. The cookies will be delicate - transfer carefully into cookie jar after cooled.
