How to Make Orange-Cardamom Madeleines

Step-by-Step

  • 1Brush molds of a Madeleine pan with extra butter. Set aside. (I'm not sure, but i suspect if you don't have a Madeleine pan, you can use a mini muffin pan)
  • 2Melt 1/4 cup butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat, and stir in honey and vanilla. Let cool 10 minutes.
  • 3Whisk flour, baking powder, cardamom, and salt in a small bowl; set aside.
  • 4Preheat oven to 325, with rack in center. Stir together sugar and eggs in a medium bowl. Gently fold in flour mixture until combined. Add butter mixture, and fold until combined. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes.
  • 5Spoon batter into prepared pan, filling each mold halfway. Tap pan on work surface to eliminate air bubbles. make until cookies are puffed and edges are golden, 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack; let cool slightly. Unmold cookies onto rack, and let cool completely.
  • 6Stir together sugar and orange zest and juice in a small bowl until glaze is smooth, thick, and opaque. Using a small pastry brush, coat ridges size of each cookie with glaze. Let stand 15 minutes.
