1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
¾ cup butter, melted and cooled
½ teaspoon almond extract
½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Spray madeleine mold with cooking spray. (I used the kind with flour mixed in and it worked like a charm.)
In a double boiler, heat eggs and sugar, stirring constantly , whipping in as much as as you can until egg mixture is thick and light yellow in color. About 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and cool.
Stir in flour and remaining ingredients.
Fill madeleine mold with a tablespoon or so of batter but do not overfill or level. Bake until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Cool completely then remove madeleines from pan. Sprinkle with cinnamon-sugar, if desired.
