Lavender madeleines are a light and airy french cookie that I enjoy serving with an afternoon lunch or tea. (Madeleine pans can be purchased at any specialty kitchen shop.)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a food processor, process sugar and lavender flowers until finely ground.
  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. In a large bowl and using a wire whisk; mix eggs, lavender sugar mixture and vanilla until light and fluffy.
  4. Gradually whisk in melted butter.
  5. Using a rubber spatula gently fold in flour.
  6. Generously spray Madeleine pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  7. Spoon a scant tablespoon of batter into each madeleine mold, leave the batter mounded in the center.
  8. (This will result in the typical"humped" appearance of the Madeleine).
  9. Bake 8 to 10 miutes or until golden brown.
  10. Immediately remove from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack.
  11. Store in an airtight container.
  12. Dust with confectioners sugar just before serving.
  13. Enjoy!
