I want to try these for the simple pleasure of it. Mine will look nothing like them, of course, but hell, sugar cookies are just inherently good. And I’ll take any opportunity to legitimately slap icing on something 🙂
The rest of the photo gallery looks pretty fabulous as well… I want to try the Chocolate Crinkle cookies coated in powdered sugar. Mmmmmmm…..

Dorie Greenspan’s Sablés (Basic Sugar Cookies) Recipe
Adapted from “The Essential New York Times Cookbook” by Amanda Hesser
Butter, sugar, eggs, salt, and flour—that’s the short ingredient list for these versatile sandy-textured sugar cookies. For simple round cookies, form the dough into a log, then slice it into rounds. For shaping with cookie cutters, roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thick and cut it into cool designs.
Game plan: The dough can be kept in the refrigerator for up to 3 days or frozen for up to 2 months.
