How to Make It
Sift together cake flour, baking powder, and salt in a small mixing bowl; set aside.
Beat eggs in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy; add vanilla, beating well. Gradually add sugar, beating until volume of batter has increased 4 times.
Gradually fold in reserved flour mixture and grated lemon rind. Add 3/4 cup melted butter, stirring until thoroughly blended. Set aside.
Brush madeleine pan with remaining 1/4 cup melted butter; spoon reserved batter into each shell, filling three-fourths full. Bake at 350° for 12 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove from madeleine pans, and cool completely on wire racks. Sprinkle each cookie with powdered sugar. Dip one-third of each cookie into Chocolate Glaze; place on waxed paper-lined cookie sheets, and refrigerate 2 hours. Store in airtight containers.
