I love a good rainy Monday morning. I pine less to be outside and buckle down to get some work done. And... it's always a good excuse for tea time, second breakfast, a morning treat- whatever you wish to call eating madeleines at 11 am. I was the proud recipient of a madeleine pan for Christmas this past year, and have been making my fair share of them lately. I love eating them because one has to slow down and savor each bite and really enjoy a break in the work day. Here's my favorite recipe- enjoy!
