Weather has been extremely hot lately, so when I read I had to roll the cookies, I did not feel like making them. Plus I still have half a container of Mini Gateaux Breton baked 2 weeks ago (or was it 3 weeks ago?) that everyone got tired of eating it, including me. However, when Marie suggested that I could bake it like refrigerated log cookies, I thought it was such a great idea and so much less hassle, so I changed my mind. Making the clarified butter didn't deter me because I have a few tubs of these in the freezer...waiting for recipes like this. I like to clarify a few blocks of butter at one go and then freeze them. But I didn't keep the milk solids though..I just threw them away.. argghhh.. I should have kept them!
The dough was easy to put together..but you need to press it hard to stay together.
I added required cinnamon with the flour and when it came to the cinnamon for coating/topping, in my blur state, I add it into the sugar for the dough again! Nevermind I thought, probably just end up more cinnamony.
Cut and dip in sugar and bake...
Fresh out of the oven - my whole kitchen smell delicious!
Paired with morning coffee.
These are very good cookies. Just right amount of sweetness and spice (maybe a bit more in my case but is ok with me). And now I know why these cookies are called Sandies, because the texture is very sandy...well, in a good way. :)
