Mari’s Madeleine Cookies

My Madeleine cookie recipe was a big hit on the show not to mention my production team could not get enough of them. If you are a cookie aficionado like me you’re going to absolutely love this easy recipe that I’m proudly calling; MAReleine cookies.

What you will need:
1 stick butter (unsalted)
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons of lemon zest.

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Grease and flour the madeleine pans. (These can be of various sizes).  Melt the butter and let it cool down.  Beat together eggs, sugar and salt, then add the vanilla.  Gently fold in the flour using a spatula.  When blended, fold in the butter very carefully, but quickly so it does not settle at the bottom of the mixing bowl.

Spoon the batter into the pans and bake for about 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.

Turn out onto a cooling rack and once completely cool, dust with confectioners sugar.

Your Madeleine cookie may be stored in an airtight tin for up to 4 days. If you wish as an alternative, you may substitute the lemon zest with orange zest.

And there you have it!
