French Madeleines - Fill the Cookie Jar



French Madeleines, are they a cookie or a cake... you decide.
French Madeleines are they a cookie or a cake?  These yummy morsels are perfect treat to have with your afternoon tea or coffee or even use them for a delicious dessert.

                    French Madeleines                    

This month's Fill the Cookie Jar theme is healthy or a cookie that makes you think of a new start.  I am not sure that these cookies fit either theme but they are delicious and worth making.

I had found a madeleine pan a while back for $3... yes  $3 and it now I think it is one of my best purchases.  I made this recipes three times over the holidays and each time I have changed the flavour so I feel that I have a new cookie each time I make them.  These yummy cookies or cakes work wonderfully as a light dessert with some whipped cream and fruit.


French Madeleines, are they a cookie or a cake... you decide.


I found this recipe on Discover - A Blog by World Market.  The Honey Vanilla recipe I think is just perfect.. not to sweet and you can add different spices to make them your own.  The first batch I made I added cardamom and then I decided to add anise (my favorite flavor) ~ I thought these spices were perfect for the holidays.  

Ingredients:
1/2 cup butter melted and cooled
1/4 sugar (I use zulka morena pure cane sugar)
2 tbsp honey
1 tsp vanilla (I used anise extract when I used anise)
2 eggs
3/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
1 tsp anise or cardamom

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Butter Madeleine pan (I used PAM)
Melt butter and set aside to cool.
Once butter is cool, add sugar and mix well.
Add honey, vanilla and eggs.  Mix well.
In another bowl mix flour, baking powder and either anise or cardamom.
Mix dry and wet ingredients just until they are well incorporated.
Spoon batter into mold, tap pan against counter to remove bubbles.
Let sit for 5 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Cool on wire rack.
Dust with powdered sugar.

Note:  For one batch I used orange sweet finishing sugar and cardamom.  I think you could use some orange zest and orange flavouring.  I also mixed this recipe by hand... no mixer needed.

The original recipe said to mix the dry and wet ingredients and let stand for 5 minutes.  I found that it was easier to spoon the batter into the mold and let stand for 5 minutes.

I can't wait to try a few different flavours, I am thinking the next one will use lemon.. What spices or flavours would you use?

French Madeleines, are they a cookie or a cake... you decide.

Coconut Peanut Cookies - Fill the Cookie Jar


Coconut Peanut Cookies / This and That - gluten free, no bake cookies

This month's fill the cookie jar was to make patriotic cookies ~ well I didn't do that.  I also left my cookies for the last minute and as the weather was hot and muggy, there was no way that I was going to turn on the oven... So I made some no bake cookies, with coconuts and peanuts.

Gingerbread Eggnog Latte Cookies ~ Fill the Cookie Jar

As I was trying to figure out what type of cookie I should make this month to Fill the Cookie Jar with I had found a cookie that was in a shape of a cup.  It was made with premade cookie dough and used chocolate as the latte and a pretzel as the handle.  And that is how this cookie began......

M&M Candy Corn Cookie Bars to #fillthecookiejar

I can't believe that it has been a month ago since I was writing up my post for Fill the Cookie Jar. These months are passing by so quickly.  October is one of my favorite months.. I love all the autumn colours and the crispness in the air. It is also the month of Halloween.  I am not so much  a Halloween person but I love all the Halloween candy that have been floating around.  My favorite being Candy Corn.

Fill the Cookie Jar with Granola Cookies

It is time to Fill the Cookie Jar and I think mine was empty for a long time... as when I asked hubby what I make his comment was ~~ "You make cookies".  His only suggestion was to make something that wasn't too sweet and I think I fulfilled his request.
