The last few weeks here in the south have been a frozen tundra...OK, I suppose it hasn't been as bad as up north and on the east coast. But, it has been cold! These Lemon Madeleines were summer on a winters day. The hardest part about them was beating the eggs with a whisk, and only because we had gone sledding the day before and I attempted to snow board....I am sure you can guess how that ended if it hurt to whisk. ;)
These, of course, were a hit in my house. I had to hide some so I would have some cookies left over for photos. The recipe only makes 12 so they did not last long. If you are longing for summer in the midst of winter pick up a copy of Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan and make these light, delicious cookies!
Make sure to also check out the LYL over at Tuesday with Dorie to see how other cookies around the world liked these!
