Lady Grey Madeleines

I’m so excited to have Tracy guest post here today, y’all. If you don’t already love her, you will pretty quick. I cannot imagine a better baker. Tracy always delights me with her creations on Sugarcrafter, but also, I want you to know that she is one high quality friend.

In the past three years, I’ve come to realize I couldn’t really live without her. She’s a wonderful person through and through, which I think you’ll learn quickly just by reading a few posts on her blog. Thank you, Tracy, for guest posting today. Love ya!

Hi there! I’m Tracy from Sugarcrafter, and I’m happy to be your host here on Bluebonnets and Brownies today. Although, that probably makes it sound more like I’m facilitating a game show than sharing a recipe with you. In any case, I’m stepping in for Amber today while she’s away. So, come on down!

Now, it’s no secret that Amber’s husband is British, and that they both share a love of tea. In fact, Amber is the one who got me hooked on using an electric tea kettle, which I’m now sure I can’t live without.

So when tasked to come up with a recipe to share, my mind couldn’t help but wander to tea and how I could possibly incorporate it into my baking. The answer comes in the form of these light and spongy madeleines, with a fragrant orange sugar that brings out the natural orange tones in the Lady Grey tea.

I baked up mine in a mini madeleine pan and they go perfectly with a hot cup of tea, but also with your morning coffee if you need a little nibble as well. Other than a madeleine pan, there are no special tools required to make these sophisticated cookies…so you can whip them up in an afternoon!

      Love Madeleine’s. The perfect little cookie.

      We drink decaf Earl Grey teas these days. Warming us up for winter once again.
