Accessories you need



Madeleine baking trays can be purchased from specialty cooking stores, however this recipe would probably also work well with mini muffin trays.

    Wow - these are LOVELY! Made three trays (36) large Madeleines and one tray of tiny ones with this recipe ... baked seperately so I could ensure the temperature was the same for each one. Gorgeous!
