Yield 3 dozen


  • 1 1/4 cups sifted cake flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
  • 1 cup butter or margarine, melted and divided
  • Sifted powdered sugar
  • Chocolate Glaze

How to Make It

  1. Sift together cake flour, baking powder, and salt in a small mixing bowl; set aside.

  2. 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.

  3. Gradually fold in reserved flour mixture and grated lemon rind. Add 3/4 cup melted butter, stirring until thoroughly blended. Set aside.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
