Madeleine Cookie Recipe

We’re focusing on eating as healthy as possible right now and not keeping a lot sweets or processed foods in the house to avoid mindless snacking,  but the one rule is if someone wants to put in the effort to bake something that’s ok. : ) Madeleines are so simple you probably have the ingredients already in your pantry. 

You’ll need a few “specialty tools” to really pull this off, including a madeleine pan (I’ve tried a bunch and this is my all time favorite – and inexpensive compared to others!), an electric mixer and a sieve for dusting powdered sugar. (If you don’t have a sieve you can put the powdered sugar in a bowl and dip like we did last night.) 

This recipe is one of my all time favorites – tag me on Instagram if you make them! I’d love to see!


Madeleine Cookie Recipe

Makes 12 cookies


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter + more for greasing pan
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar 


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Butter your madeleine pan and lightly dust with flour. 
  • Melt 1/4 cup butter on the stove and set aside to cool to room temperature. 
  • Mix eggs, salt, and vanilla extract on high until pale and fluffy. Add pure cane sugar and beat until soft peaks form when you lift the mixer (takes roughly 7-10 minutes).  
  • Gently  fold in flour 1/4 cup at a time. 
  • Add grated lemon and slowly fold in melted butter. 
  • Spoon into cookie molds (filling about 3/4 full) and bake for 12-20 minutes depending on your oven. Cookies are done when they’re springy to the touch and lightly browned on the underside. 
  • Let cookies cool on a baking rack and use a sieve to dust with powdered sugar. Serve warm!
