Cheesey Sables

Makes 20
by Tenina Holder

I love a good sable, and normally think of them as sweet or as the base of a cheesecake or tartā€¦so these are a savoury take on a sable. Crumbly, buttery, little bites of yum, they are perfect for the Christmas entertaining platter. Get out the dried fruit, a few nuts, some good cheese and theseā€¦or box them up and use them as gifts. Maybe save the egg whites and go ahead and make that Crio Bru Pavlova you are dreaming about!
