Madeleine Cookies

It is safe to say that I have a coffee addiction. Starbucks obsession. However, my little ones are jumping on this Starbucks train and I am not sure I want to share my little piece of heaven 🤦.

They haven’t started drinking coffee or any of the fancy drinks – yet;  but they sure love Starbucks madeleine cookies. Both of them are hooked and my wallet is feeling it. I had to find a recipe for these babies that would satisfy my cookie monsters and save more money for my “extra shots” of espresso 😜. Because let’s be honest, mom needs those EXTRA SHOTS!!!

20171206_1140581190565998.jpgI did not come up with this recipe on my own. I wouldn’t even know where to begin.

BUT –> Pintrest to the rescue.

I looked up the first few recipes and they all seemed to have the same list of ingredients. Under 10! Which is super important when you decide to make something from scratch an hour before school starts. YUP! That just happened.

Thankfully I had everything on hand and did not have to go shopping!!! #momwin
