When Susan and I were recently in Paris, we tried a lot of different pastries. We wanted to try to replicate them on our return. This included Lemon Madeleines from Galeries Lafayette on Boulevard Haussmann.
Heart-shaped Red Velvet Madeleines with a lemon glaze are a perfect confection for Valentine’s Day. Valentine’s day was first associated with romantic love in Chaucer’s 14th century poetry about “Valentines.”
