Sabl?astry is a sweet French pastry favoured for its delicate texture. It is used here to make tender cookies for an easy but elegant restaurant-style plated dessert. For a pretty presentation, use different coloured raspberries, such as golden and black.

- Sable Pastry
- 1/2 cup Raspberry Coulis
- 1/2 cup whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
- 64 raspberries (about 2-1/2 cups/625 mL)
- 2 tablespoons icing sugar
MethodRefrigerate pastry for 30 minutes or until chilled. Between 2 sheets of lightly floured waxed paper, roll out pastry to 1/8-inch (3 mm) thickness. Using 2-1/2-inch (6 cm) flower-shaped or round cutter, cut out cookies, rerolling scraps to make 24 cookies. Place, 1 inch (2.5 cm) apart, on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Freeze for 15 minutes, or refrigerate for 30 minutes, or until firm.
Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, rotating and switching pans halfway through, for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden. Transfer to racks; let cool. (Make-ahead: Store layered between waxed paper in airtight container for up to 24 hours or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
Filling: In bowl, whip together cream, sugar and vanilla. Place 1 cookie on each of 8 dessert plates. Top each with about 1 tbsp (15 mL) cream mixture then 4 raspberries. Repeat layers once. Top with remaining cookies.
Dust stacks with icing sugar. Drizzle 1 tbsp (15 mL) Raspberry Coulis around each stack.
