20 Minute Madeleine Cookies

These classic Madeline Cookies are really easy to make, and the taste is amazing!  You can experience with this recipe by adding your favorite flavors, nuts, spices, or extracts.  I’ve tried making madeleine cookies with honey, shredded coconut, and lemon zest.  The beauty of these cookies is that they always turn out great and it only takes 20 minutes to make them. This recipe makes 24 cookies.  You will need a 12 cavity madeleine pan, I have 2 pans to speed up the process.

  • Optional step: for better results, cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and let it chill in the fridge for about 30 minutes.  (I usually skip this step if I don’t have time).
  • You don’t want your dough to stick to the pans, make sure you butter the madeleine pans.

  2. The printed version of the recipe doesn’t list how much corn starch, but I did find it on the page. AND, these are absolutely delicious! The only problem I had was with the sides baking equally which may be because I used a silicon baking sheet.
