Madeleines

These buttery treats are half way between a cake and a cookie. They were made famous by the french writer Proust, who is whisked away to his childhood by the their heavenly taste. In the “madeleine incident”, as it’s known to the literati, they are remembered as being dunked in linden tea, although I think coffee would work just as well! If you can’t get your hands on a madeleine pan, the bottom of a muffin tin makes tiny little cakes that are just as good!
