Madeleines

Bought Madeleine pans many years ago-made them once. Now, some 20 years later I thought it was time to make them again! They are so easy and so fun to look at when they're done that I'll probably make them more often now. I usually add to the recipe by adding coconut; or dipping the baked cookies in Nutella (yum); or drizzling a lemon glaze over all

Serves:

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

15 Min

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

4 large
eggs
1 1/3 c
sugar
2 tsp
pure vanilla extract
1 tsp
grated lemon peel
pinch
salt
2 c
all-purpose flour
2 1/2 stick
unsalted butter, melted, cooled slightly
powdered sugar

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Generously butter and flour pans for large madelines (apx. 3 x 1-1/4 inches (Pans are a metal mold with scallop-shaped indentations, sold at cookware stores)
2
Using electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar in large bowl just to blend.
3
Beat in vanilla, lemon peel and salt.
4
Add flour; beat just until blended. Gradually add cooled melted butter in a steady stream, beating until blended
5
Spoon 1 tbsp batter into each indentation in pan. Bake until puffed and brown, about 16 minutes (Note: my first batch was way too brown and 10-12 minutes gave me a better result, at least for my oven)
6
Cool 5 minutes. Gently remove from pan to cooling rack. Repeat process, buttering and flouring pan before each batch. These can be done 1 day ahead
7
Dust with powdered sugar; or drizzle with lemon glaze; or dip end into chocolate
