These French biscuits owe their name to the city of Sable-sur-Sarthe, where they were first made in 1670. Making cookies is very simple. You can not put cocoa in the dough, it will also be delicious. Add baking powder if you want a softer cookie, or leave it out for crunchy. You can make cookies of any other shape, but for "Saber" this is considered a classic.
