This is Jacques Torres's recipe for sablés, a classic French butter cookie with a sandy, crumbly texture (sablé means "sandy")—though this fabulously dense version is actually more like shortbread. Just add some orange sprinkles and you’ll be set with a tasty Halloween sweet. Plus, you’ll want to be eating leftovers all week long.
