4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled, plus more for greasing the pan

1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting the pan 

1/8 teaspoon baking powder 

Pinch kosher salt 

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 cup granulated sugar 

1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 

2 large eggs, room temperature 

1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar 

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 


Special equipment:
a madeleine pan
  1. Adjust the racks to the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a madeleine pan.
  2. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and 1/2 teaspoon of the cinnamon to a medium bowl, and whisk to combine.
  3. Add the granulated sugar, vanilla and eggs to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat until the eggs are pale, thick and light yellow, about 5 minutes. Pour in the 4 tablespoons melted butter and mix until just combined. Turn off the mixer and stir in the dry ingredients.
  4. Fill the madeleine pan three-quarters of the way to the top of the molds and bake for 10 to 11 minutes. Cool slightly on a wire rack, 10 minutes, then remove the cookies from the molds.
  5. Combine the confectioners' sugar and remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Place the cinnamon sugar in a fine-mesh sieve and dust the cookies before serving.
