Orange Blossom Madelines

These little finger cookies are super tasty, great for any event, and can be made in any flavor. In the spirit of OBA (Orange Blossom Ave), I used orange essential oil as the flavor, but flavored waters work as well.

If you are in need of a Madeline baking tin they can be purchased on Amazon for a reasonable price.

Orange Blossom Madeline Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup of sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • Dash of salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of water
  • 2 Drops of flavoring (I used orange essential oils)
  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup of unsalted butter, melted, cooled
  • Powdered sugar

How to make:

In a large bowl, beat together sugar, eggs, and salt. Once whipped, add the flavored water.

Next, mix in flour and butter – alternating.

Refrigerate the batter one hour to thicken.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Grease the Madeline pan and dust with flour. (If you skip this process the cookies will darken.) Using a teaspoon, spoon the batter into the wells. Bake time for a standard cookie size is 12-14 minutes. (Since the cook time is short, I recommend trying just a couple the first time to make sure your spooned portion isn’t too large.)

Return unused batter to the refrigerator until it’s time for the next round. Repeat.

Remove pan from oven and allow to cool.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar when ready to serve.
