Fluff-Filled Chocolate Madeleines were chosen for TWD this week by Margot from Effort to Deliciousness.
I’ve never made madeleines. Have always thought they are pretty. Decided to finally buy a pan. It came a good week ago. I just made the cookies Monday afternoon.
I have decided that I wish Dorie’s recipes would tell how many cookies a recipe should make. Seems like I’ve wondered before on some other recipes in the book, Baking From My Home to Yours. I also didn’t know with madeleines how much cookie dough/batter should go in each little mold. So I used all the dough for 12, since the recipe says one pan.
I think the molds were a little overfilled. I think the recipe would make 16-18 cookies better than 12. The cookies took 21 minutes until I decided they were done. They came right out of the pan, which I did butter and flour well. The cookies seem huge.
I followed the recipe exactly. So these are fluff-filled, but you can’t really tell. I tried to show the inside, but never did get a good picture of it. But I will say this—these are mighty tasty. They definitely need the ganache for that added kick. I think I would rather have them filled with ganache and dipped in it. I drizzled a fun little S on the ganache with some melted white chocolate.
You can get the recipe for these on Margot’s blog. Check out the other TWD bakers' madeleines, too.
