Madeleines are one of the most traditional French cookies. They are most similar to sponge cakes, but have are firmer in texture. They were supposedly invented in the 18th century when a young servant decided to prepare her grandmother’s recipe in order to save an official dinner from catastrophe! Indeed, the chef had gotten into a fight with the head servant, and had left the castle with the dessert that was supposed to be served that night. Baked in scallop shells, these cookies received a great deal of appreciation and were name “Madeleine” for that young servant’s name. These delicate treats became world famous thanks to Marcel Proust’s “madeleine moment” described in his book “In Search of Lost Time”.
These miniatures madeleines are perfect for a small snack. Keep them to yourself or dare to share. They are fantastic by themselves or with a cup of tea.

I love these! They are so soft and buttery and delicious. Not too sweet. I take mine and scoop a little bit out of the middle, add a touch of ice cream and a dab of chocolate sauce. They’re perfect when you don’t want to overdo it on dessert.
They are so very good!!!
These cookies are excellent! The first time, I purchased these for a friend. After that. I decided to get some for myself, They go great with tea or coffee. So moist.
My mother in law opened the package while I wasn't home and ate one entire bag of these before I could salvage the rest of my shipment!
So much better than donuts. So delicious.
