GIVEAWAY UPDATE~~CLICK HERE TO ENTER 100$ GIVEAWAY, u'll love it i know:-)

Buttery makes u happy...buttery makes u gay....and buttery brightens ur day!

Specially at Christmas time , buttery makes me smile.
 
So here we have buttery melt in ur mouth sables  ie french shortbread , many ways ,jus for u and me at Christmas time.
Do i really have ur attention now:-)
And we have the cutest little tarts in Christmas shapes , filled with caramel and chocolate and cookies galore.

Laurie chose Sables @ Baking with Dorie  ,this month , perfecto i thought, and so in time!

And then something else happenned , i checked in Have the Cake , a group i joined a bit ago , and there is shortbread happening there too , and i so wanted to catch up , and here are these buttery Sables.

Well , they add on to 2 of my baking groups , they are so good at Christmas time , with all these cookie cutters , and if that aint enough they are French and buttery.....
 And oh so soft and melty {melt in ur mouth}
They bake beautiful ,are tender and fill ur home with the frangrance of buttery goodness u will love.

They are good rite outa the oven {careful:hot}, and when cooled.

They need no frosting and stand beautifully on their own.

And there is sooo muc u can to t play around and make it ur own.
A winner every side, u will love these , i say.

This one was more like a star bar, like a layer of buttery shortbread {i know u must have noticed by now how muc i love the word buttery,and i used salted butter by the way}, a layer of caramel, and a layer of chocolate,u cant go wrong here!
Thannnk u Laurie!
Thannnk u Nancy!

And oh so good to play around, lemme begin sooonnn and show u all the fun i had....so u can have some too.....
Oh ,im excited and so hope that u are too......
I dont have step step pics to the dough coz i brought it together at night and all our energy saver lites are warm daylite , = yellow ,so no nite pics:-)
Its one of the easiest doughs , a little soft to handle , but still fast and easy.
You begin by beating butter at room temp , oh so good i tell u, i mean butter ,sugar , flour , a bakers fav ,come together to create some deliciousness galore!
How good is that!!

One thing though , though halve the recipe , i did , and realized how little it would be to bring this all together and had to bring together a second batch immdtly!

After sitting and improving in the refrigeration over night ,i get working again.

For step by steps pics on the rolling and cutting u can hop here :-)

Butter does make everything good! I can see the sheer decadence in these. Delicious.
