Pumpkin Sable Cookies

Pumpkin sables. I had half of a roasted kabocha squash (Japanese pumpkin) to use up, so I cooked it down with some olive oil to incorporate into sables – a lovely and simple French butter cookie. The pumpkin acts as an egg substitute, and lends a beautiful color and sweetness to the richly flavored treat.
