Homebaked Madeleines

Madeleines are one of cookies that many people really enjoy eating - that is most of the time purchased from COSTCO in this clear plastic box and individually wrapped.  After purchasing them year after year during the holiday season, I finally gave it a try baking in the madeleine mold that I had stored away for a long time.  The recipe ingredients are very simple, but its all about the technique one might say.  So, if you want a fine crumb madeleine, beat the butter in room temperature until pale yellow instead of melted butter.

A perfect egg shaped scoop for the job.

Wow! done.
Got to learn to take them out quick to prevent peeling

Very light.
Extra doughs went in the cupcake molds.  I wonder why they don't make Madeleine molds with 24 cups.
Very good with a cup of milk.
