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

How to Make Madeleines

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat 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)
  • 2Using electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar in large bowl just to blend.
  • 3Beat in vanilla, lemon peel and salt.
  • 4Add flour; beat just until blended. Gradually add cooled melted butter in a steady stream, beating until blended
  • 5Spoon 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)
  • 6Cool 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
  • 7Dust with powdered sugar; or drizzle with lemon glaze; or dip end into chocolate
