madeline cookie muffins

Have you ever had a French Madeline Cookie? Those soft spongy, buttery pieces of heaven. They traditionally look like the picture above, in the shape of a shell. I used to eat them weekly at my old job at Starbucks (they sell the BEST packaged Madeline's).

Now that I don't work there, I decided to make them at home! But I don't have a shell shaped mold for French Cookies. So in a pinch I used mini muffin tins! Still just as delicous!

The recipe I have been using is from Epicurious.com and is yummy to the max!

Paired with some coffee (and a cow spoon for stirring) it makes for a sinful breakfast!
