Almond Madeleine Cookies

 These are easy to make and are a treat to eat.  The ground almonds give these cookies a really nice texture and flavor.  Madeleines are a light cake like cookie that goes great with coffee or tea.


 These are one of my favorite cookies, I just love the cake like texture.  I use to make these at my restaurant Purple Rocks and I would pretend I was in Paris while I listened to classic French music.


Madeleine cookies are great with a nice dessert wine also known as Port.  Did you know that a dessert wine can be named a Port if it comes from Portugal?


Recipe: Approx. 20

  • 10 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1/4 Cup Finely Ground Raw Almonds
  • 3/4 Cup White All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Teaspoon Almond Extract
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Sea Salt


 First melt the butter and cool to room temperature.

Grind the almonds very fine in a food processor.

Pre heat oven to 375 degrees.

Measure the flour, ground almonds, sugar and salt, mix together and set aside.

In a mixer, mix the eggs and butter together on high speed for 5 minutes then add the almond extract and mix for for 1 more minute.

If you dont have a non stick madeleine pan grease and coat the pan with flour.

Fold in the flour mixture then spoon into a madeleine pan no more than 3/4 full.
