Traveling Teacups: Honey Madeleines

The flavor of honey really comes through in these madeleines. These are very simple to make but a madeleine mold is required to get the traditional shell shape.

¼ cup butter
2 eggs
¼ cup sugar
1 tablespoon honey
½ cup flour
½ teasp baking powder
Confectioners' sugar for dusting

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly butter madeleine molds. In a small saucepan, melt ¼ cup butter. Cool. In a bowl, beat eggs and sugar until pale and thick. Stir in melted butter and honey. Sift flour and baking powder onto egg mixture, then fold in. Spoon mixture into prepared molds. Bake 10 minutes, until light golden-brown. Leave in molds 2 minutes, then turn out and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Dust lightly with powdered sugar. Makes 12.
