Madeleine.. I had my first ever bite into these delicious cake like cookies in the US while visiting one of Mohit's cousin. Rich buttery taste and soft and moist texture made me crave for more and we were in Costo ( the store from where our cousin got them ) the same day to get a huge box of these. These French cookies have become our favorite now and I am lucky to find a Madeleine pan to make my own batch whenever the craving struck.
