Madeleine Cookies

Recipe by lizshary
READY IN: 1hr 13mins
YIELD: 30 cookies




  • Mix the sugar and grated lemon peel together in a large bowl, and set the mixture aside for about an hour.
  • Pour the eggs into the mixture, and mix them together.
  • Add milk, and mix until blended.
  • Mix in flour, baking powder and vanilla sugar.
  • Add the softened butter, and mix until blended.
  • Cover the bowl and put it in the fridge for about an hour. (Personally, I don’t think this step is necessary.)
  • You’d better get a non-stick Madeleine mold, and you need to butter and flour the pan before pouring the batter into it. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Spoon the batter into the pan. Fill about 2/3 of the pan. Bake until puffed and brown (13-15 min).
  • Remove the cookies from the pan when they are still hot. Let them cool on a cooling rack.
  • You can slightly butter and flour the pan again for the next batch.
  • Dust the cookies with icing sugar before serving.
