Geoffry Le Cher


You will just have to take my word for it... these flavors go together! (Of course, if you make them you'll find out for yourself.)

Hebal sage, sweet shortbread and coarse kosher saltiness make this a huge sucess every time I make these lovlies.

    Add butter; using on/off turns, process until dough comes together.

    Divide in half. Shape each dough piece into log about 1 1/2 inches in diameter.

    Chill until firm enough to slice, about 30 minutes.

    Bake until cookies are golden, about 10-15 minutes longer.
