cowboy me, 2.0: jose nazario beauty and the street



madeleines are sme of beth's favorites, and of the several recipes i have for them, this one from Cookies (irresistible biscuits, brownies and bars) is probably the best. it's the most delicate and not as hard to make as you may think. buy yourself a madeleine pan if you're going to make them, they are about $13 at williams-sonoma and well worth it. the distinctive shape reminds you this is a cookie of distinction.

makes 12

preheat the over to 375°F. generously butter a 12 cup madeleine pan. sift together the flour and baking powder.

using an electric mixer, beat the eggs and powdered sugar together for 5-7 minutes, ot until the mixture forms a ribbon when the beaters are lifted out. this is a key to the fluffy, biscuit-like texture of the madeleine. gently fold in the lemon or orange juice and rind.

beginning with the flour mixture, alternately fold in the flour and the butter in four batches. allow th emixture to stand for 10 minutes, then carefully spoon into the greased madeleine pan.

bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges start to beocme golden brown. gently lift out of the pan, turn out onto a wire rack and dust with confectioner's sugar. serve immediately.
