Have you all ever had a madeleine?  

They are vanillaey, cakey, cookies that are downright heavenly.  My mom made some as favors for Courtney's wedding - and I fell instantly in love. 

She swears they are easy to make, and this recipe seems to be fairly simple enough.

You need a special madeleine pan to make them the traditional way:

I might have sneaked a few treat bags home with me - for blogging purposes, of course.

So I'm on the lookout for a madeleine pan at the thrift store or something, since if I actually went out and bought one, I'd be in big trouble (ie: I would make some today and subsequently eat the whole pan).  

My mom actually made these a little while ahead of time and froze them - and they were still fantastic!

I'm thinking they would be great Christmas gifts - perhaps dipped halfway in chocolate and covered with sprinkles or decorated somehow - packaged up in a nice little box.



  1. Oh, I love Madeleines! Seriously, love them!

  2. Hailey's favorite cookie... Every time we go to Starbucks... :)

    It's on my list to make them too!!

  3. Oh goodness ... these look delish. I have a sneaking suspicion that they would be like potato chips ... I couldn't eat just one :)
