Madeleine Cookies

Delicious buttery Madeleine Cookies lightly sprinkled with powder sugar are perfect as an afternoon treat with fresh made tea or excellent with your morning coffee. The trick to perfect texture is hand mixing the melted butter, being careful not to over beat and then allowing the dough to rest under refrigeration. Those two tips, along with the rest of the instructions, create a cookie that is simply exquisite. I have to remind my family, a carefully prepared treat like this is made to appreciate not devour, but these little cuties have a habit of disappearing from the serving tray anyway.

Watch the video to see how easy this method is to repeat and follow the detailed instructions below to have these eatfoodlicious Madeleine Cookies for a well deserved treat.

Ingredients

In a medium sized bowl: add eggs and sugar.

Use a hand held mixer, beat on high speed for 5 minutes (until consistent). 

Add vanilla extract, lemon zest and beat on medium speed for 1 minute. Add ½ cup of sifted flour, salt, baking powder and mix. Continue with the rest of the flour and mix.

Slowly pour melted butter in the bowl.

Using a whisk and mix until everything is combined (do not recommend using a mixer for this step). Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Smear softened butter on madeleine pan.

Scoop out about 1 ½ tbsp batter in the center of the shell (no need to spread to the edges).

Bake for 10-13 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove the cookies from the oven and let them rest on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes, then transfer to the cookies to a wire rack and let cool completely.

Optional: Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
