Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Cinnamon Madeleines

Cookie # 21 is: 

Cinnamon Madeleines

2 eggs
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
Cinnamon-sugar (optional)

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.
