  • SPECIAL EQUIPMENT:

  • 12-mold standard-size madeleine pan, 1-tablespoon cookie scoop (optional), wooden skewer or similar tool.
  • To make the madeleines:

  • Sift the flour, baking powder, and cloves into a bowl, then whisk in the salt and nutmeg. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the eggs, yolks, and granulated sugar and whisk on medium-high speed for 5 minutes, until pale and airy. Remove the bowl from the mixer stand, add the flour mixture, and, using a rubber spatula, fold in gently. Add the bourbon, cream, and 1⁄2 cup of the melted butter and continue to fold gently until the ingredients are incorporated. Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, brush the madeleine molds with 2 tablespoons of the remaining butter, then place the pan in the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Position an oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat the oven to 375°F Remove the pan from the freezer. Using the scoop or two tablespoons, scoop a rounded tablespoon of batter into each prepared mold. Then, using the wooden skewer, spread the batter gently to evenly.
  • fill the mold. Bake the madeleines for about 12 minutes, until lightly golden brown and a slightly raised bump forms in the center of each one.
  • Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool for 5 minutes. Using a fork, gently loosen each madeleine from its mold, then tip the pan to turn the madeleines onto the rack, scalloped side up, and let cool completely.
  • Wash and dry the pan, brush the molds with the remaining 2 tablespoons butter, and place the pan in the freezer for 10 minutes. Fill the molds with the remaining batter, then bake and cool the same way.
  • To make the glaze:

  • In a bowl, whisk together the confectioners’ sugar, milk, and nutmeg to the thickness of heavy cream. One by one, dip each madeleine into the glaze at an angle, covering about 1 inch. Place them back on the cooling rack until ready to serve.
