St Michel Mini Madeleines

Noemie's Pick

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.

TO DIE FOR

I love madeleines in general, and these buttery morsels do not disappoint! Just the right amount of a sweet treat. Beware though, if you're anything like me you're going to find yourself finishing the whole bag at once... and then reaching for the second bag.
