Now in France almost every Patissier makes Sables or Shortbread and they all have their little special recipe and most of them will have sables maison, which means shortbread from the house. I am going to make a recipe, which is a standard shortbread recipe. There is one part sugar, two parts butter, three parts flour, plain flour. I’ve got 50 grams, 100 grams and 150 grams. I will mix them using a mixer, I put the butter first then the icing sugar and then the flour and all of these ingredients mixed will give me a certain consistency.
