Rose Madeleines with Glittered Honey Lemon Glazed

madrose2

Ok, I confess  I like everything ros-ey, pink-y, and glittery, yes…  I am a girly girl 🙂

For my favorite blog event the Sugar High Friday , host  this month by Susan, I used all my favorites above, with a little help from the Madeleine Queen, I present to you the sweetest small delights. 

Rose Madeleines with Glittered Honey Lemon Glazed

Recipe adapted from here

Ingredients

1 cup (140g) flour, sifted
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup (200g) sugar
2 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 stick (4 oz/113g) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
1 tablespoon rose water

Glaze:

  • 3/4 cup (150g) confectioners’ sugar, sifted
  • Juice of a lemon, strained
  • 2 tabelspoons honey
  • Sparkling candy springkles

Directions

Preheat the oven to 200ºC/400ºF. Lightly grease two 15 ½-by-9-inch (38x22cm) nonstick madeleine pans.

In a separate small bowl, combine the sifted flour and baking powder. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the eggs, sugar and brown sugar. Using a spatula, fold in the dry ingredients until just combined; the batter will be slightly stiff. Add the butter and rose water, mixing until just combined (do not overmix). Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Spread a heaping tablespoon of the batter evenly into each madeleine cup and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until a hunchback has formed on the cookies and they are golden brown. Unmold them immediately onto a wire rack and allow them to cool completely.

While the madeleines are cooling, make the glaze: in a small bowl, combine the confectioners’ sugar, the lemon juice and  whisk until the mixture is smooth. Dip some glaze onto the ridged side of each madeleine, sprinkle the sparkling candy and let the glaze set for about 5 minutes before serving or storing.

Rose Macarons with Vanilla Yogurts Butter Cream

Like Arfi said, that we in the KBB have been struggling with macarons,  thank’s to Dita, who made this as an informal challenge for us.

I wanted to make it actually for two reasons, first  because I miss Paris… it has been like what??? 7 years since last time… it used to be one of my favorite weekend getaways when I lived in Holland, secondly I miss my only sister,  last time I met her, was in London, before she departed for her honeymoon to Italy, almost 1 and half years ago… My baby sister (27 years old, not so “baby” anymore but still a baby sister to me 😛 ) loves Macarons.

So this pictures of macarons have 2 titles too, one : My sister and Me, two : Paris & Me 😀

As for the recipe I used  “the one” from  Tartellete’s , but I “studied” many recipes and watched a couple of movies to  prepare my self for the “battle” 😉 It’s my first time, it’s far away from perfect, even from the same batch I put half  on the silpat, came out with legs, the other half on baking paper they cracked…. and piping it out, I know for sure I need a lot of practices in that area too 🙂 but for the mean time I just enjoy those macaroon’s legs 🙂

Oh… and, I used rose water flavor for the shells and simply vanilla and a tablespoon of hard yogurts (lebaneh) to give a bit of sour taste to the butter cream.

 

UPDATE: I’m sending this as my entry to the Mad for macarons in May, because I think Helen of Tartelette should get a present for allowing us all to use her recipes 🙂
