There was once a fancy cookie that I only saw at special get-togethers and celebrations. I did not know the name of this cookie, but I recognized the shape and the unique flavor/texture combination that was somewhere in between cookie and cupcake.

One day I was walking through the kitchen aisle at my favorite thrift store (because wonderful treasures can be found in the kitchen aisle!) and I saw something that caught my eye: that wonderful shell-shape in a baking pan. For a couple of dollars I brought it home and vowed to find a recipe to use to duplicate those delicious special-occasion cookies.

Of course, life happened and I never got around to finding a recipe to use…or rather, I just never found the time to make them.

When the following recipe showed up in my inbox from my Disney buddy, Marshall, I knew it was fate. It was time to dust that cookie pan off and make some Madeleines!

This is not a dump-everything-in-a-bowl and stir kind of recipe. The extra little steps, though, make a difference!

Enjoy! (even if there’s no special occasion – no need to wait!)

This is the 4th Hundred-Foot Journey recipe that I’ve shared here…and I’m guessing there will be more before the summer is over!
