Making Dallas Even Better

Smart Cookie
Rana Abla left Paris with her mother's recipe for sable cookies, the popular soft, crumbly biscuits of France. She made them for friends and gave them as gifts. Now she operates Sableh Sweet & Savory, a bakery dedicated to creating sinful treats. Besides jam-filled sables, she offers a large selection of European-style items that includes French macarons, cakes, and cake pops, alongside hard-to-find Greek loukoumades and Lebanese namouras.
