The Perfect Rainy Day Baking Challenge
It’s been rainy here in the Bay Area the last few days, and I’ve been drinking a lot of tea to keep warm and cozy. It’s been the perfect time to perfect and TASTE test a recipe I have been working on in the Crespo Organic Kitchen this winter- Mango Madeleines.
Madeleine cookies are little French cakes made with a lot of butter and often served with afternoon tea. They are soft and spongy in the middle and little chewy on the outside, a lovely variation of textures. Most folks outside of France consider them more of a cookie than a cake. They are by all counts, pretty damn exquisite, in texture and flavor.
