Recipe For Olive Cheese Sablés

A sablé is a French butter cookie that has a shortbread-like crumb. These Olive Cheese Sablés are really easy to make, and will be well appreciated as a replacement for store-bought crackers on a cheese platter.

Head straight on to the Recipe For Olive Cheese Sablés ♥

I am always amazed when we fly how much other people seem to bring on the plane with them. Dave and I take one carry on suitcase between the two of us. For the flight I have a pillow which is slightly smaller than a standard pillow. Even though we get a pillow on the flight, I like to have my own goose down pillow for my neck. I use the airline pillow for the small of my back. I also carry any medications I might need while we are on holiday including a broad spectrum antibiotic. Then there are the toiletries we will use during the flight and the morning after when we are in transit. I also pack all the electronic items we need as the only time my check in luggage has been broken into was when I put my laptop charger into my suitcase.

I take with books for us to read – long haul flights can be quite boring without a good book to read. Dave usually plays games, either using the console or his laptop, or on my iPad. I also take with an empty 250mls water bottle. Some airlines don’t provide water in bottles and I like to have one handy for when we are waiting to take off, and for during the night. With the new regulations you cannot take liquids through security but once through I fill the water bottle up. I also sometimes grab a snack to take onto the plane. Either a bag of crisps or something sweet, depending on my mood. I would not have minded taking these Olive Cheese Sables with me as they are very tasty and perfect without any topping. They were also really good with a strong cheddar and some aged gouda.

  6. They’re great tips! We can’t do one carry on between the two of us with all the computers and cameras. I like the idea of bringing an empty bottle 🙂

  9. These savoury biscuits look very appetising, Tandy. Another one I will definitely make. I was so annoyed when I travelled back from CPT yesterday on SAA. I always travel light with just a small carry on suitcase my laptop bag and my handbag. It has never been a problem before but yesterday (8pm flight so after a reallllllly long day) they decided I couldn’t take three bags as hand luggage and took my small suitcase away. So annoying, as all three of my bags are smaller than the hand luggage most other people have so I felt quite unfairly prejudiced.

    1. I would go out and get a cabin size bag which takes your laptop. That way they cannot take a bag away from you 🙂
