Heidi Swanson's Madeleines Went Straight to My Belly

See all of those madeleines up there? See them? They are ALL GONE!! So delicious and addictive they were, that I made them Sunday afternoon and they were but mere crumbs-on-a-plate by last night. So. The Madeline Math here, if you will, is this: 24 madeleines gone in 24 hours, 8 hours asleep, 10 hours away at work = we consumed 24 madeleines in less than 6 hours!!!!! OMG!

What's really nice (and a bit scary) about these madeleines is that yah, we ate 'em.. but I never felt sick of them (or sick-sick of them). No belly ache, to being tired of eating them... I could eat a whole 'nother 24 of them over the next few days. I did have help, btw.

I clearly need to never make these again. Or, I need more than one madeleine pan, so I can make MORE of them FASTER!!!!!

Should you like to make some of Heidi Swanson's delicious little madeleine dream-boats, go check our her recipe! Make them! Do it! And I can personally vouch for her pouring-the-batter-from-a-glass trick. Worked like a charm. Just pour what you need into a glass and then pour into the pan. I got crazy and then refilled more than I needed while my pan was in the oven, in preparation for batch number two, and the batter started to separate. So I needed to pour it back in and whisk it up. So yah, just pour what you need at the time.

I'm having some girls over in a couple of weeks, so I might make these again soon... however, I'd need to share them with the girls... and I'm not sure I'm ready to do that. ;)

If I would have been there, these gorgeous cookies would have gone to my belly first!
