Recipe: Hot Cocoa Madeleines
Madeleines are my favorite cookie. I love their delicate flavor and distinctive shape and texture — they taste more like a mini sponge cake than a cookie. When I was a kid, my mom would take me to a coffeeshop a few blocks from our house. She'd get her latte and I'd get hot chocolate and a madeleine pulled from the old-fashioned lidded candy jar that sat on the counter.
