Madeleine tea cookies

Jan Mullikin


When I was first married I found a stainless cookie set with chocolate molds, cookie cutters, icing decorating tips, etc. all together in a box for $6.00 I was so excited! When I opened it, I found Madeleine molds on one tin. It had this recipe and they were so good. I always try and have these at a tea, as well as regular scones and petit fours. They're so pretty, as well!
