Peanut Butter Madeleines

Print This Recipe Print This Recipe

Madeleines are a classic French pastry. They have the texture and flavor of a cake, but are baked in a little shell-shaped pan and are often referred to as cookies. Traditionally flavored with vanilla bean and a hint of lemon, I thought it would be fun to add an American flair with a little bit of peanut butter.

That little bit went a long way and these peanut butter madeleines are perfect for peanut butter lovers, while still possessing the delicate texture that fans of traditional madeleines appreciate.
