vanilla-brown butter madeleines

Oh, madeleines…are you really cookies, or are you cakes disguised as seashells? Personally, I think these Vanilla-Brown Butter Madeleines are little cakes, but however classified, they are delicious. Vanilla and brown butter are two things that make everything better. I’d be happy with just one in a sweet, but both– wow! (Another great treat with this flavor combo is the Brown-Butter-and-Vanilla-Bean Weekend Cake from BCM.) Madeleines are easy to make by hand, but you do need to allow for some chill time in the mold before baking, especially if you want to get the prized hump on the back. I got nice, gentle bumps on the backsides of these. I was pretty pleased with that, because the hump’s been hit-or-miss for me in the past. These have great flavor and texture, and I tossed them in some vanilla sugar while they were still warm.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll and please join us if you haven’t already!

  2. Your madeleines look perfect. I agree that they are little cakes.

  3. Vanilla sugar topping sounds good. I am so happy I got the characteristic bump on mine.

  4. You know I love madeleines (and vanilla sugar haha – great minds etc.!) Looking forward to trying out this variation.
