I have been drinking a lot of tea lately. For me, coffee is my drink of choice when I need to get something done, but when I want to relax– it is a cup of hot tea all the way.
Because I have been drinking a lot of hot tea, I decided to find my inner Julia Child and bake a batch of French Madeleines — the perfect tea cookie.
There is something about a cup of hot tea in the afternoon, a good book, and a blanket. For me, that symbolizes relaxation at its best.
Did you know that tea is second only to water as the most widely consumed beverage in the world?
Recipes like this can look pretty daunting — but I promise it is not. There are just a few ingredients — butter, sugar flour, eggs, and vanilla — and of course citrus flavour, and in this case we used a lime.
Madeleines are delicious when eaten just from the oven and cooled until barely warm. They will keep for a day or two in an airtight container, but will start to lose that nice crisp texture after awhile. They are simply at their best when super fresh.
Like I said before — they go great with a cup of hot tea. The cookie acts like a sponge and soaks up that delicious flavour and when you take a bite, it is pure heaven on a plate.
