Light and fluffy on the inside and crisp on the outside, these Classic French Madeleines are completely irresistible. And they're easier to make than you might think! Just make the cookie batter, pour into a prepared tin, and bake! You're only a half hour away from having a batch of sweet, lemony madeleines. They're the perfect afternoon sweet treat, and they are sure to "wow" your friends and family.

From the Chef: "This French cookie delicacy pairs wonderfully with your afternoon tea out on the front porch.  I love making these for my niece’s tea parties to add an authentic touch."
