    I’m always on the lookout for sites that teach me something new. This site has an excellent article on making sablé breton tartlets in small hemispherical molds. (I bought a set of hemispherical molds in various sizes last year, just so I had them for chocolate work and things like this.)

    Could you do these in silicone muffins cups?

    With the addition of 3/4 tsp baking powder and one tsp vanilla, this dough is exactly the same as the one I used for the gateau basque. Interesting technique, leveling the cookies with a microplane grater.

    Silicone muffin cups are going to be quite a bit bigger, but the basic idea would probably work. These tend to be a bit brittle, larger ones might be more likely to break while handling them.

    I also liked using a microplane to even out the edges, the last time I made sablé breton tarts the uneven edges were a visual distraction.
