Yield: 24 cookies
Prep 35 mins Bake 375°F 10 mins
Lemony Madeleines with Raspberry Ganache
  • 2  egg yolks
  • 1/2  cup  sugar
  • 1/2  cup  butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/2  teaspoon  finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1  tablespoon  lemon juice
  • 1/2  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1/2  cup  all-purpose flour
  • 1/2  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/8  teaspoon  baking soda
  • 1/8  teaspoon  salt
  • 2  egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 1/4  cup  finely chopped pecans, toasted
  •  Raspberry Ganache

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour twenty-four 3-inch madeleine molds; set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, combine egg yolks and sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add melted butter, lemon peel, lemon juice, and vanilla. Beat on low speed until combined.

3. In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Sprinkle flour mixture over egg yolk mixture; stir in gently. Gently stir in egg whites and pecans. Spoon batter into the prepared molds, filling each about half full.

4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden and tops spring back when lightly touched. Let stand for 1 minute in molds. Using the tip of a knife, loosen cookies from molds; invert onto a wire rack. Remove molds; cool cookies on wire rack.

5. Using a soft brush, brush excess crumbs from cookies. Holding each cookie at an angle, dip halfway into Raspberry Ganache; let excess drip back into pan. Let stand until ganache is set.
