Imported from Brittany, Madeleines are sweet, moist muffins made traditionally from flour, sugar, butter and eggs. Madeleines have an interesting history. They became fashionable around 1730, first in Versailles, then in Paris, through Stanislas Leczinski, father-in-law of King Louis XV, who was very fond of them. This classic French delicacy can be enjoyed at any time of the day: an elegant addition to breakfast trays, great for coffee breaks, a must at tea time and an instant dessert with sliced fruit. Flavored with real vanilla and other fine ingredients. 8 per package.
