Hazelnut Madeleine Cookies
Total TimePrep: 30 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling
I would have rated it 5 stars but the recipe failed me the first time because the balance of wet and dry ingredients is way off. Had to add two more eggs for a total of 4 on the second try and it turned out right. Still a bit of a challenge folding the egg whites at the beginning, so start with a quarter to loosen the mixture. I found out it’s best to chill the batter for 30 minutes as I only had one pan and could only bake half while keeping the remaining batter in refrigerator. The second batch turned out with a better rise. After cooling, I sliced them in half like two clamshells and filled each with dark chocolate ganache and a whole hazelnut as a pearl.
