Day 10: Madeleine Cookies


These cookies are a favorite of ours.  If you’ve been to Paris, you will recognize them from the cafes.  These cookies are slightly spongey and have a hint of lemon.  They are almost like a mini-cake.  The dough is easy to make and the consistency is more cake-like than cookie.  The butter is melted then poured into the dough at the end.  A special madeleine tray is needed to make these and we purchased ours from Sur la Table.  Their cute shape, dusting of powdered sugar and taste make these a treat that anyone would appreciate.
