TWD: Lemon Madeleines



I almost didn't get to take a photo of these. My husb and I scarfed these down so fast. They kept disappearing! Ack!

I love the lemony goodness of these cookies. The lemon zest really adds a good kick to it. I also like how they make my breath all lemony fresh afterwards. I know it kind of makes it sounds like it might be too lemony, but it's not. It's the perfect amount of lemon and it's great with coffee or tea. Also, they were super easy to make! Huzzah! I'm totally going to make these again and try it with different flavors. Maybe lime. Maybe lilikoi. Guava would be interesting too...

For the recipe, you can find it in Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Also, check out the blogroll to see more pretty madeleines!

  7. I like your alternate flavor ideas - and enjoy living in Hawaii. My best friend used to live on Oahu, I was so bummed when she moved back to the mainland...
