Irresistible Walnut Sable Cookies

Smart Cookies, Sweet Treats

Isn’t it a little ironic that on the same day lent starts, I feature this cookie? Yes, this cookie swimming with butter – doused in sugar and packed with flour.

I apologize – I really do.

All of you who have decided to take part in lent and give up sugar ( or sweets, for that matter of fact) for the next forty-days  – – you impress me. Whatever you maybe giving up … chocolate … coffee.. sugar … smoking… alcohol… you’re all doing a good thing as long as you’re doing it for the right reason. I hope the next forty days brings you peace, love and causes you to remember the reason you are making this sacrifice :)

The good news is, you really don’t want this cookie.

It’s crumbly and butter messy with a disgusting  just the right amount of sweetness… it’s chock full of walnuts and would be terrible perfect with a cup of coffee.

Who am I kidding…?

It’s lent – – I probably shouldn’t lie to you.

I love this buttery goodness… bookmark this recipe for after Easter. Come back then, and tell me how much you love love love your daily dose of sugar ;)

*yuck* — just look at these!! *drool*

Until then, hold tight cupcakes – – forty days will come and go in the blink of an eye.

This cookie, is also perfect for a little post Mardi-Gras pick-me-up. You know, just in case you had a couple extra sips over the weekend. All the goodness in this cookie will take care of any hangover you may have.

I care about you  – – it’s true. The last thing  I want, is for your to go into work feeling sick. It’s your duty to eat these cookies and feel better ;)

Irresistible Walnut Sable Cookies

4 Cups Flour

2 Cups Butter

1 Cup Granulated Sugar

1/4 Cup Brown Sugar

1 1/4 Tsp Sea Salt

3/4 Cups Cream Cheese (at room temperature)

2 Tbsp Vanilla Extract

3 Cups Chopped Walnuts

Directions

In a large bowl, mix together the flour and salt.

In your standing mixer ( or in a large bowl, using a hand mixer) – combine butter and cream cheese. Mix until light and fluffy.

Next, add both sugars.

Add Vanilla.

Now, add flour mixture. Mix just until incorporated.

Add 1 1/2 cups walnuts.

Transfer to a floured surface, and divide into two even halves.

Roll each half into a long log, approximately 1 inch in diameter.

Wrap each log in parchment paper and chill, at least 30 minutes or up to two weeks.

Once chilled, Pre-heat oven to 350 oc and lightly spray your cookie sheet.

Handling one log at a time unwrap and coat in the rest of the chopped walnuts.

Next, using a sharp knife slice into 1/4 inch slices. Repeat with second long.

Arrange your sliced dough onto the cookie sheet, leaving approximately 1/2 inch between each cookie.

Bake for 15 minuets.

Allow to cool … and then – – enter sable bliss ;)

This really is a QUITE the post- I talk about purifying yourself – – discuss a hang over you may have … and then temp you with cookies :).

Hmm… yea, let’s skip all that and just focus on the sweetness at hand!!

I hope you have a delicious day sweet hearts

    1. Catalina,
      You’re so sweet!! Thank you so much for your comment :) When I made them, I had to get rid of them quickly or …well, have you ever seen the cookie monster with cookies — pretty much the same deal ;) lol

    1. Terra, how sweet are you!! Thank you for your comment… honestly, that’s so nice of you. I’ll let you in on a little secret – – so I don’t scarf all of these down, I ended up giving most away lol

    1. Valentina… I’m with you – – it’s really hard to give just one thing up, I think I would crave it that much more!!- – I guess that’s the point lol.

      I do a fast for one month – but I can eat anything between sun rise and sun set, I think even that is a little easier.

      Let me know if you give this little puppy’s a try :)
