Moderate Madeleines (Cocoa)

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Jenny Sanders

I got this as a diabetic cookie recipe many years ago from the Toronto Star. Because they are rather soft and cakey, I like to bake them in madeleine pans. They are very good, even if you are not diabetic give them a try. Do not overbake them, or they may be dry.

Very nice dark chocolate tasting treat. Not very sweet at all; tasted like semi-sweet dark chocolate to me. Not really a kid cookie, but a nice soft madeleine. I made 12 madeleines but my pan only holds 12 and there was only enough batter leftover for maybe 1 more so I didn't make them. These are not for someone who wants a very sweet cookie! but were enjoyed.
