If it’s Spring, then I’m finding any excuse I can to throw a tea party. Personally, I believe tea parties can work well for any season, but there’s something about the fresh blooms and delicious fruits of Springtime that make it a bit more magical. So, today I was inspired by this gorgeously styled seasonal shoot and dreamed up a Lavender Madeleines recipe to compliment your own teatime plans. Bake up a batch of these bitesize treats and make sure to send me some!
- 2 tablespoons of edible lavender
- Edible lavender stocks (for garnish)
- 2 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 6 large eggs
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 sticks of butter
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 3/4 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract
- 3/4 teaspoon of sea salt
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease two madeleine cookie sheets.
- In a medium size bowl, mix thoroughly the edible lavender, flour, baking powder, and sea salt in a medium bowl.
- In a stand mixer, mix the eggs and sugar together until a soft peaks are formed. Fold in the dry mix until fully integrated. Melt the butter and add it in to the stand mixer along with the honey and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly with a spatula.
- Fill the cookie sheet molds almost to the top, leaving a half centimeter space in the mold. Place in the oven and bake approximately 10 minutes.
- Remove the cookies from the sheets and garnish with the lavender stocks. Enjoy!
