DirectionsWatch how to make this recipe
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
To brown the butter, melt the butter over medium heat in a heavy saucepan, allowing to bubble and foam, stirring frequently. Once the foaming subsides, allow the butter to brown along the bottom and then remove the pan from the heat. Browning will take about 5 minutes total; do not burn.
Fill the greased madeleine baking molds and bake until golden, 9 to 11 minutes.
*Cook's Note: you may substitute a mini-muffin pan for madeleine molds.
