These classic Madeline Cookies are really easy to make, and the taste is amazing!
You can experiment with this recipe by adding your favorite flavors, nuts, spices, or extracts. I’ve tried making madeleine cookies with honey, shredded coconut, and lemon zest. The beauty of these cookies is that they always turn out great and it only takes 20 minutes to make them. This recipe makes 24 cookies. You will need a 12 cavity madeleine pan, so I have 2 pans to speed up the process.
