Madeleines aren’t exactly the treat that get me jumping up and down for joy, but when done right, they could almost compete with the real desserts of the world. While Madeleines look like cookies, they’re actually small sponge cakes that are distinctively shaped like shells. Madeleines make lovely additions to sophisticated gatherings like teas, luncheons, and showers.
Donsuemor recently sent me a box of Madeleines that included Lemon Zezt, Chocolate, regular, and chocolate dipped Madeleines. Mmm, I was impressed! Surprisingly so! These fresh treats smelled of rich butter and were adequately sweet for my tastes. I also loved the spongy yet buttery consistency. Well done Donsuemor!
