Orange Madeleines

You know when you get a little recipe that comes with the package? Usually those aren’t very good. But when you get a fancy pan for gourmet French cookies, that’s apparently the exception.

So yes, today we learn how to make something a little more Fancyyy. 

Mainly because they came out looking really nice last time I made them and I took pictures.

And I mean… me? Post recipes for anything other than cookies?

Surely not.

(spoiler: I only post cake and cookie recipes. Ever.)

Anyway. Enjoy.

Orange Madeleines

  • 2/3 Cup flour
  • 1⁄4 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1⁄2 Cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1⁄2 Teaspoon orange extract
  • 1⁄2 Teaspoon shredded orange peel
  • 1 Cup powdered sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350º. Spray pan with Pam or similar non-stick spray.
  2. Sift together flour and baking powder in small bowl. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat eggs, orange extract, and orange peel on high speed for 5 minutes. Gradually beat in powdered sugar. Beat another 5 minutes or until thick.
  4. Gently fold in flour mixture, then melted butter. Mix until smooth.
  5. Spoon the mixture into the cups, filling about 3⁄4 full.
  6. Bake approximately 8 minutes, or until edges are light brown. Cool in the pan around 1-2 minutes. Loosen cookies with a knife then invert pan on a rack. When cool, sprinkle the tops with powdered sugar.

Hope you all enjoyed. ❤
