Friday Night Madeleines

This past Friday night was near perfect for me. I did a few quick chores after work, showered and then met up with my neighbor, who also happens to be one of my best friends.

We had decided earlier in the day that we were going to have a nice relaxing night at home with some take out. After a little more discussion, we decided to still get the take out but to get some wine and dessert too! We browsed the desserts at a local market's bakery, but after not finding anything we loved - decided we'd make Madeleines after eating our dinner.

So on the whim, we our relaxing night turned into a little less relaxing, but with added deliciousness!

These really aren't that difficult to make, but keep in mind you need the special Madeleine pan. Take a look at how to make this these amazing cookies!!!
