Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Lemon Madeleines

Mmmm – madeleines. One of my favourite French treats and one that I’ve made a few times and written about here on the blog. But I’d never made glazed madeleines until this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe called for it. I’m a big fan, like Dorie, of the glazed madeleines at Blé Sucré in Paris […]
