From Todd Madeleines will always have a special place in my heart. While working in the restaurant industry, my close friend Antoine and I would regain our afternoon sanity through a daily ritual during which we would pause and savor an espresso and a madeleine. The elegant simplicity of the madeleine and espresso combined with a dear friendship was always a life moment to bask in. The browned butter is a classic addition and imparts a wonderful nutty flavor to these delicate cookies. And finishing the madeleines with bright, floral Meyer lemon icing makes these irresistible to me.
