Sablés from Bosie Tea Parlor are not on the restaurant menu, but are offered for sale near the teas and coffees. Clear tubes filled with about 16 pieces of these butter-rich crumbly French cookies range from $6-7.50. Sable is the word for sand in French, and these delicate cookies are so named for their sandy texture. Just a touch sweet and offered in flavors of vanilla, matcha, chocolate with fleur de sel, and a playful, nutty oatmeal and raisin combo, there's a version to please everyone. My personal favorite is the bergamot-scented sablé—simply opening the tube releases a whiff of smoky, citrus scents. Bite-sized earl grey cookies? Yes, please!
