A sable is a French shortbread cookie that is crisp and buttery. This particular sable is shaped and flavored like the kabosu fruit, a citrus native to Oita Prefecture that is an expensive delicacy outside of the prefecture. The tart juice and zest make a perfect flavor complement to the rich shortbread flavor. This cookie is perfectly baked and has just the right crisp and crumbly texture we'd expect from a sable.
