Nothing Says Summer Like Orange Madeleine Cookies!

It finally feels like summer in SF so to celebrate the season, I made some Orange Madeleine Cookies. This recipe comes from Emeril except that I skipped the chocolate dipping part. I wanted my cookies to be refreshing and the chocolate felt too heavy. They came out perfectly soft and smelled amazing! Happy Friday everyone!

Ingredients: (24 cookies)

4 large eggs
3/4 c sugar
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 stick unsalted butter, melted and slightly cooled
1 c bleached all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 Tbsp orange zest, finely minced


1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray Madeline molds with cooking spray.

2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the eggs, sugar and vanilla on high until pale and fluffy, about 10 minutes.

3. In a small mixing bowl, combine the flour and baking powder. Add the zest and half of the flour mixture to the mixer and beat on medium speed until incorporated. Add the remaining flour mixture and beat again until incorporated.

4. Add the butter in a steady stream and continue beating until well blended. Let stand for 10 minutes.

5. Spoon the batter into the molds so that they are 2/3 full. Bake until lightly golden, 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from the oven and using a thin knife, pop them out of the pans onto a wire rack.

I love madeleines. They're small, so you don't have to feel guilty if you have more than one.
