Honey Spiced Madeleines + French Friday’s with Dorie

My friends over at French Friday’s with Dorie have been cooking up some amazing dishes and I have, sadly, missed the party.  It has been a whirlwind, these past two months and my normal routine flew out the window.

Well, now I am back.  And I have a lot of catching up to do. I missed the Corn Soup, Cafe Salle Pleyel Hamburger, Creamy-Cheesy-Garlicky Rice w/Spinach and so much more.  I have read so many of the posts and I am certain that I am going to have to infuse some of these recipes into my weekly meal plan.

Today’s recipe could not have come at a better time.  This coming Wednesday is the beginning Rosh Hashanah – The Jewish New Year. It is a time to reflect, make resolutions, and plan a better life for the coming year. Foods that we eat during Rosh Hashanah includes apples and honey to symbolize a sweet new year. So Dorie’s Honey Spiced Madeleines are the perfect way to say S’hana Tova – Happy New Year to those of you celebrating embracing this joyous holiday.

Next time I will double the recipe as 12 madeleines disappeared before I washed the madeleine pan.  They are that good!

    These madeleines have been serendipitous for more than one Dorista this week. Yours look beautiful – no wonder they didn’t last. S’hana Tova and all the best to your family in the coming year.

    Susan, as usual I love your photographs and I”m so glad that you liked the madeleines. I’m invited to dinner Wednesday night and I think these will be one of the desserts I’ll bring. I’m also thinking of Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake and some Jammers from CookieBar. Too much, I know, but …

      Hi Dorie! These went way too fast! They were/are delicious. I too, was going to make the Marie-Helene’s Apple Cake(always a winner and so easy) and I am thinking something savory – not sure what yet. I hope you are well and Happy New Year to you and your family!! xx

      Hi Beverly, so glad you are enjoying the UB. It’s a fun way to meet people like you! In the beginning of French Friday’s with Dorie we were asked to not post the recipes ( a great way to promote the book). I have kind of kept that deal, but I did find the recipe on Dorie’s website:
      http://is.gd/TzhX2u. If you don’t own the book; around my french table, I highly suggest it. Every single recipe is delicious, easy to execute, and healthy. Enjoy the madelieines and have a terrific weekend!

      Thanks Liz – madeleines should be called cake rather than a cookie – don’t you agree?!

    Your madeleines look so perfectly browned, Susan. And it looks like your helper gives his seal of approval. I wasn’t thinking about the honey connection when I made these, but what a great reason to serve these for the holiday. L’Shana Tovah.
