Ever had the perfect bite of a cookie/cake? These Lemon Madeleines are just the thing – fluffy like cake, but still with a bit of texture around the edges. Plus, they can be flavored with whatever citrus you have on hand!
Having summer housemates means many things, but the best part is that they become my guinea pigs for desserts since the husband doesn’t eat any sweets! One of my housemates this summer is Paige Lenhoff, a professional baker by trade who works as Front of the House Management at our workplace.
Of course, I took this into advantage and handed Paige the Bouchon Bakery cookbook, asking her to bake something for the blog. These Madeleines were the chosen recipe and she executed them perfectly! They are fluffy yet have a lovely crisp edge around them, and the lemon flavor imparted from the Honey Ridge Farm Honey Creme Lemon was just delicate enough to grace these cookies with a touch of citrus in every bite.
You’ll need a madeleine pan for these and I’m not one to buy extra pans and tools because our kitchen space is extremely limited, but this pan is well worth it. I’m even thinking of purchasing a second one so I can double this recipe and invite friends over for a coffee date! Give this recipe a try and I promise you won’t be disappointed – it’s like biting into a cloud of sweetness.
