In wintertime, soft Madeleine cookies are always yummy in the morning or the evening with a cup of coffee. Especially during holiday time, these cake-like cookies are also really good with a hot chocolate mix or cocoa mix. We always buy from the stores, the plain one, but wanted to enrich the flavor with some more ingredients, so we added raisin. These soft, delicate cookies are my all-time favorite. Earlier I made these cookies a few times and every time corrected my past mistakes. Sharing those tips with you all that I learned to make a soft batch of Madeleine cookies.
