BROWN BUTTER MADELEINES

BROWN BUTTER MADELEINES

More tiny cake than cookie, these Madeleines get their toasty taste from browned butter.  Sure you can skip this step but I wouldn’t.  Just take care to not burn the butter.  It’ll bubble for a minute or two before starting to brown, then take if off the heat when it starts to darken.  It will […]
