At the beginning of every month in 2009, I am offering C&Z readers a new desktop calendar, i.e. a wallpaper to apply on the desktop of your computer, with a food-related picture and a calendar of the current month.
Our desktop calendar for October is a picture of lemon butter cookies, as they appear in my cookbook. Delicately buttery, crisp, and thinly glazed, these sablés au citron draw their flavor from the juice and zest of a lemon, bolstered by a touch of salt. They’re a staple from my childhood I revisit often.
Instructions to get your calendar are below.
