{ afternoon tea }

By Brit

Yesterday, I had a cozy girly tea time. It was gray and rainy, the perfect weather for getting cozy at home, sipping tea and nibbling some treats like homemade Madeleines. We spent a funny afternoon, exchanging  the latest news and digging out old anecdotes. Thanks to Géraldine, Viviana and Mascia for this wonderful moment!

300 g all-purpose flour
200 g butter
200 g sugar
4 eggs
1 pinch of salt
lemon zest

{ 1 } Melt the butter and allow it to cool while you make the batter.

{ 2 } In a large bowl, beat the eggs and sugar until foamy. Add the lemon zest and beat to combine.

{ 3 } Gradually add flour, salt and melted butter until all ingredients are mixed together.

{ 4 } Grease a Madeleine cookie tray.

{ 6 } Preheat oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F). Bake about 8-10 minutes until the edges are golden grown.
