5 Reasons to Make Madeleines

1. Madeleines are the best excuse to use a pretty tin. In my case, the tin is a never-used Christmas present.

2. Simple ingredients -- flour, eggs, sugar, vanilla extract, lemon zest, baking powder, and butter – never fail.

3. They’re one more excuse for me to bake.

4. They smell (and taste) incredible coming out of the oven -- warm, buttery, and sweet.  

5. They’re lovely with a cup of tea.
