Our soft, moist Traditional madeleines dipped in a chocolate coating. Savor the contrast in texture and taste. These beautiful madeleines are a decadent and harmonious treat.
I received one of these Madeleine cookies in my December Love with Food box!
I decided to enjoy a chai with this madeleine cookie, and the chai that I reached for today was this Coconut Chai Tea from Zhi Tea. I liked how the creamy coconut melded with the buttery cake-like cookie, and how the black tea and spices seemed to bring out the flavor of the dark chocolate. Really delightful.
What I Think:
When I look at a Madeleine cookie, I always expect them to be a crunchy cookie (I don’t know why!) but these are so soft and cake-like! I suppose because they look to me like a cookie that has been pressed through a cookie press (although I know that they’ve been baked in a mold).
So, no, they aren’t a crunchy cookie, these are light and soft, with a delicious buttery taste. It has a rich flavor, but there is a certain delicateness to it too. It seems to melt in my mouth when I bite into it.
The cookie on its own is quite a treat, but then to dip it in dark, rich chocolate – oh yum! It becomes quite a heavenly little treat.
My Final Thoughts:
Love these. I would buy these without a second thought if I saw them in the store.
