Stop the sleds. Inside, Maple Madeleine Cookies, toasty and warm, cool on the rack. Another tray bakes in the oven. The cookie batter, whipped with maple syrup, maple sugar, maple extract, then glazed with warm maple syrup and butter, intensify the flavour. The original madeleine recipe was passed onto Madeleine Paulmier, who delighted Louis XV and his court with her shell-shaped tea cakes. Today, these petite Maple Madeleine cookies inherit the culture of Canada and New England, where deep in the deciduous forest, syrup makers tap the sap from old maple trees. In their shacks, men (usually) stoke a birch fire to sugar-off the spring juice into syrup. The result is a taste different than every other. Bake moist and tender Maple Madeleine Cookies, and then dance under the sugar moon (the first full moon of spring). For the love of maple syrup, make these today and leave me your comments below.
This recipe was adapted from Martha Stewart’s post Madeleines 101. Today, I am joined by a group of talented bloggers from the Sunday Supper Movement to celebrate Easy Spring Recipes. I’m very proud to contribute this Maple Madeleine Cookie recipe for the event. I expect you’re ready for the fresh flavours of spring.
