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.

Made with cognac, used reduced fat sour cream, and topped with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Otherwise, followed the recipe as is. Absolutely Delish! No leftovers. Enjoyed by all!

Made this for dessert today (Valentine's Day) Very good. I didn't have the liquor so used vanilla as suggested. Really yummy. Next time I may try it with orange liquour.

This should be illegal - it is addictive. So simple and so delicious. Used the vanilla. Will certainly make again.

I tried this today and was so pleased with the results. The flavor was wonderful, I didn't have any brandy so I used congac. So simply and a great addition to summer berries.

This is such an elegant dessert - we make it with vanilla and to me it's even better than La Madeleine's. To add a bit of crunch, I serve it with Pepperidge Farm Bordeaux cookies.
