TWD: Traditional Madelines



I had always secretly wondered what the story was with these "madeleines." Why the special pan? What are they, really? What do they taste like? I finally got my answer... wonderful, yummy, little pillows of lemony spongey cakey joy! (I still don't know what's up with the funky pan, though). There really isn't much else to be said!

I forgot to take a picture of these lovelies before packing them up for work, so all I have is a picture of them cooling (note the delinquents in back who spent a little too much time in the "sun").
