Viennese Chocolate Sablés

This is another dessert that looks amazing (despite my poor piping skills) and is also easy to make for home baker. It comes also from Pierre Hermé's book Chocolate Desserts. They're surprisingly not dry or hard (yes, they do melt in your mouth), and they have that sought-after (at least by the French) sandy, or sablé, texture.

Based on many testimonials about this recipe, it's really tough to pipe them out because of the heaviness of the dough. Weirdly, I hardly broke a sweat doing so. I guess this confirms my suspicions: working out works! I have Popeye-like forearms! Or maybe it's from playing video games for hours on end.
