Cookie Recipe #134 - Chocolate Madeleines
Here's another Madeleine recipe, only this one contains chocolate (the best ingredient in the whole world).
Ingredients: 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, 1 cup granulated sugar, 1/8 teaspoon salt, 3/4 cup butter, melted, 1/3 cup cocoa, 3 eggs, 2 egg yolks, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 1 tablespoon shortening, powdered sugar for sprinkling.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease indentations of madeleine mold pan. In medium saucepan, stir together flour, sugar, and salt. Combine melted butter and cocoa; stir into dry ingredients. In small bowl, lightly beat eggs, egg yolks and vanilla with fork until well blended; stir into chocolate mixture, blending well. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is warm; do not simmer or boil. Remove from heat. Fill each mold half full with batter (do not overfill).
Bake 8-10 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Invert onto wire rack; cool completely. Melt chocolate chips and shortening in microwave for 1-2 minutes, stirring until thoroughly melted and smooth. Drizzle melted chocolate over cooled madeleines; allow to harden. Sift powdered sugar over tops of each cookie and serve.
Makes 3 dozen madeleines.
