Honey and lemon zest make a great couple. Today's Tuesdays with Dorie pick is titled mini madeleines, though if I were naming these babies, they would be Honey-Lemon madeleines because well...that's what they taste like. You could actually make these in any size madeleine pan. But everything is cuter when it is smaller, right?
I made these madeleines earlier this year for a church summer party. I actually was playing my usual game of TWD catch-up and made three madeleine recipes in one day. It was rather fun. And oh-yeah-delicious! Though I think madeleines are worthy of a fine-dining experience and French-bakery...they were fun to bring to a summer bbq.
All I wrote in my book was this, "So small and adorable. Love the honey and lemon zest combo!"
You really should try these honey-lemon mini madeleines. I splurged and bought a mini madeleine pan. Which turned out to be great but totally a rip off because you need like three to four pans to bake off the entire recipe. Why do they do this to us? Ugh. That's okay. I saved the batter and made more later. Also, after looking at the others posted today, I think I need to let my madeleines bake longer...mine are so light.
You can get the recipe on Di's blog, and please...check out my fellow TWD baker's blogs to see how they made and liked these adorable mini madeleines. These would be a fun addition and twist to your holiday cookie exchange.
Wondering what all this Tuesdays with Dorie stuff is? Read this post. This month the group is posting two recipes each Tuesday to make sure we finish the cookbook before the end of the year. I'm taking it a bit further and posting two posts per day to catch up on all my make-up baking adventures. I call it #HELLmonth. Wish me luck.
