  • Preheat oven to 375F
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer, with the paddle attachment, beat eggs, sugar and vanilla on medium speed until light, fluffy, and has a light yellow color.
  • Melt the butter and let it cool to room temperature

  • 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.
