Madelaine recipe, anyone?

I need a recipe for Madelaine cookies.
My friend just got me one of those Madelaine baking pans from "gastroflex" - the super flexible rubbery stuff, and I'd love to bake up a batch!

Thanks! :D

Well, I got a new computer, so mine has been a bit out of commission. I am back with vigor now!

I also started a new job and am trying to establish a private practice which keeps me VERY busy - barely an extra second to spare.

I have missed you all though - you guys are like family! Any requests or dedications? ;)

I am a marriage and family therapist - AKA 'Head shrink'. :)

This is a recipe I like. Most call for evaporated milk and regular sugar - it is much too sugary for me. I think this one has more character with the addition of butter and brown sugar.

Butter Pecan Coconut Frosting
1/2 c Butter
1 c Half & half or heavy cream
1 c Brown sugar, packed
3 Egg yolks
1 ts Vanilla
1 1/2 c Pecans, toasted, chopped
1 1/2 c Flaked coconut, unsweetened

1.In heavy saucepan, melt butter. Add half & half/cream, brown sugar and egg yolks, blending thoroughly with a whisk. Heat and stir until mixture starts to boil.
2.Cook mixture, stirring often, on low heat 5-7 minutes or until frosting has thickened. Add vanilla and cool. Fold in nuts and coconut. Use as a filling and frosting for cakes. This is also incredible over ice cream or pound cake.

Thanks for the recipe! I am going to make it for my cutie's birthday cake. YUM!

And LOL! I am a therapist too. Teens in a residential program. Think we find comfort in our kitchens?

Remembered this one - a real favorite! I love to use herbs in all kinds of cooking, esp. desserts.

Lemon and Lavender Madeleines
2 c cake flour
1 ts baking powder
1/2 ts salt
4 tb freshly grated lemon zest
2 tb lavender flowers
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 tb fresh lemon juice
2 c sugar
6 eggs

Lemon syrup:
1/4 c water
1/4 c sugar
1/4 c lvodka (use lemon or citrus if possible)
1/4 c fresh lemon juice (not out of the bottle!)
2 ts finely chopped fresh lavender flowers

Preheat oven to 325F. Butter and flour a madeleine pan (preferably non-stick), knock out excess flour.
1.In a bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, zest, and lavender. 2.In another bowl with an electric mixer, beat together butter, lemon juice, and sugar until mixture is light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition, and add flour mixture, beating until just combined. Do not overmix.
3.Spoon batter into prepared madeleine molds, smooth tops with a spatulalds and returning excess batter to bowl. Bake madeleines for 15-20 minutes, or until edges are browned and tops are golden. Loosen edges and transfer madeleines to a wire rack over a large pan. Repeat making the madeleines until all batter is used.
4.For lemon syrup, bring syrup ingredients to a boil, stir, and remove from heat. Brush warm madeleines on the wire rack with some of hot syrup, and allow extra syrup to dip into pan; repeat with remaining madeleines, making sure to keep syrup warm for best results.

Amazing! Right now I am working in a psych hospital that has both long term and short term care. I work with children, adolescents, and adults - I can honestly say that no day is ever mundane or boring!

I happen to think that cooking is therapeutic - I know that when I am in the kitchen, the rest of my life and problems cease to exist. I love the peace and satisfaction in making something wonderful out of nothing.
