Breton sablé biscuit dough

Step by step recipe:

  1. 3 min.Breton sablé biscuit dough : Photo of step #1
    Sieve 250 g flour and 11 g baking powder* together.

    Set aside.

    *Translator's note: French baking powder is about twice the strength of the UK version. For UK baking powder, 6 level teaspoons would be the equivalent. I have not tried it, but think 4 might do the job.

    Your Breton biscuit dough is ready. Weigh out into pieces of about 12 oz (325 g). Flatten into cakes and wrap in plastic film. Refrigerate overnight before using.

Remarks:

If you simply want to make Breton sablé biscuits, roll out the dough next day to just under half an inch (1 cm) thick and cut out to the size and shape of your choice. Bake at 360°F (180°C) for about 25 minutes.
