These classic French cookies, with a kiss of chocolate & a sprinkle of chopped pistachios, are elegant, yet so easy to make!


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 tsp honey
  • 1 tsp lemon zest
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 4 Tbsp milk

  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted
  • 2 3.5 oz bars dark chocolate

  2. Beat eggs and sugar in a large bowl. Beat in vanilla, honey, lemon zest and salt.
  3. Add flour and baking powder, alternating with milk, and beat until blended.
  4. Gradually add cooled melted butter in a steady stream, beating until just blended.
  5. Add 1/4 cup chopped pistachios to mix and stir in.
  6. Spoon approximately 1 T batter into each cookie indentation of Madeleine pan (filling almost to top).
  7. Bake until puffed and brown (about 5 to 7 minutes).
  8. Allow to cool for at least 5 minutes in pan, then flip onto cooling rack for an additional 15 minutes.
