This recipe was in the Houston paper. I go to La Madeleine just for Strawberries Romanoff. SO GOOD! Very easy to make...my 11 year old son makes it.

OH MY GOODNESS. This is AMAZING. I just ate two bowls. I never write reviews, but after making this was thoroughly compelled. I have been dying for these and la madeleine is just two expensive for that tiny glass and they never give you enough sauce. I made it with vanilla and it still tasted amazing. I used organic cream that was practically whipped by the time I took it out the carton (it was the good stuff), it made the fluffiest whip cream I have ever had. Horizon doesn't even come close. I added a touch of cinnamon and a pinch of salt to add a depth to the flavor. I even used my little mini bullet processor to whip the cream (just add the sugar in from the beginning). This recipe is amazing. I will now live a happier life. :)

The recipe in the La Madeleine cookbook calls for Cognac instead of Brandy. Once you make that small change it will taste exactly like what you get at La Madeleine.
