When Chef Ormachea from Revival Bar & Kitchen sent over his special almond lemon thyme sable recipe. I was ecstatic. This is the very same cookie under Revival’s famous gluten free baked Alaska. Although I do not have their specific baked Alaska recipe, I am going to create one with these cookies and try these out on our dinner guests tonight.

Chef Recipe: Almond Lemon Thyme Sable
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Almond Meal/Flour
- 2/3 cups sugar
- 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves
- Zest of 2 lemons
- Pinch of salt
Melt butter and set aside.
Combine almond meal, sugar, thyme, zest, and salt.
Combine melted butter with all other ingredients, combine well till well incorporated (use your hands if necessary).
Roll out dough to 1/4 inch thick and cut into desired shapes, or scoop and flatten into standard cookies.
Bake at 325 Fahrenheit for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Remember that this is a versatile recipe that can be used as a shortbread, a cookie that's dusted in other components, or the base for a baked Alaska 😉 so enjoy!
And celiacs rejoice!
And now that I have these delicious cookies, it is time to make up a Baked Alaska desert to top them 🙂
First, I put 10 of the cookies onto a baking dish. Next, I used a small ice cream scoop to put vanilla ice cream on top of each cookie.
Then I added a top layer of raspberry sorbet. I think sorbet will add a nice strong fruit flavor into the Baked Alaska. (I am assuming you could choose any ice cream and sorbet flavors.
Then I put these into the freezer to harden.
For the meringue, I used:
1 box of egg whites (cage free from Trader Joe’s.)
3/4 c powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cream of tartar.
I mixed with an electric mixer until stiff peaks formed. We dumped the mixture over the ice cream, and broiled on high for 4 minutes.
They didn’t brown on the sides, so I will have to experiment more with the baking part. I may just have had my oven rack too high. If I cooked these any longer, the ice cream would have melted. This baked Alaska did taste good though 🙂
