They're called Madelines (might be misspelled). I think they're like little sponge cakes, more in size to cookies, but I've never had nor made one.

Word Origin & History

Madeleine

variation of Madeline. The kind of small, rich confection is attested from 1845, named for Madeleine Paulmier, 19c. Fr. pastry cook; any use with a sense of "small thing that evokes powerful nostalgia" is due to Proust (1922).

I still think it's more of a candy mold.

Sounds good c'mon over! I like the idea one of the last posts said to make carrot cake petit fours for Easter. I wonder if there is a healthy carrot cake recipie out there? For portion control they would be about the right size.
