 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/2  cup           butter -- softened
      1/2  cup           sugar
    1                    egg yolk
    1      teaspoon      pure vanilla extract
    1      cup           unbleached allpurpose flour
      1/4  teaspoon      salt=7F
    1                    egg -- beaten
                         Crystalline sugar -- chopped
 
 Cream the butter and sugar. Add egg yolk and vanilla and beat
 thoroughly.  Combine flour and salt. Add to the butter mixture and
 blend until the dough is smooth. On a very lightly floured surface,
 shape the dough into cylinders about 1 to 2 inches in diameter.  Wrap
 in waxed paper or plastic wrap and chill for at least an hour.
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brush refrigerated logs with beaten egg
 and roll in crystalline sugar. With a sharp knife, slice the dough
 into rounds about 1/3-inch thick.  Place 1-inch apart on a parchment
 covered baking sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cookies
 are slightly colored around the edges.
 
 Yield: approximately 4 dozen Sables
