TWD rewind: Sablés

I missed the Sablés for TWD last wek due to travelling, and meeting friends, and making holiday, and sleeping long, and... just lazying araund!
But I LOVE Sablés and so I couldn't wait to catch up!
The recipe was chosen by Barbara of Bungalow Barbara, so there you may find it, and also some pretty good looking pictures and variations.

Preparations: roll the log in sugar (and coconut, not pictured), sliding them into the oven, bake with 175°C.

Letting cool them for a while

And already ready. That's it!

(The brown edges are the coconut on the second batch)

Ok, I still have to work on the looks, I know, I know. But for today - who cares! I - CAN DO - MY OWN - SHORTBREAD!!!

I never have to go to the store and buy expansive imported stuff anymore!

But wait, that also means that there is no more reason to stay away from shortbread because I would have to go to the store to buy them and there is also no price-barriere any more I could decide not to overcome...
At least, I guess the three-or-more-hours-chill can keep me away from baking (and eating!) them all the time!

Next time, I would use a bit less butter, because they ran a bit out of shape at the bottom while baking and they taste very buttery, so I guess a bit less butter-taste would do no harm. I will use normal and not cane sugar, although I like the slightly brown colour, but it makes the Sablés a bit grainy.
And I will try the savory variations soon!
