Making Madeline Cookies Without A Cookie Mold

Madeline’s are one of my favorite cookies. They are sweet, moist, buttery, and fluffy. Every bite of one brings you back to sweet memories of being a kid. These cookies are simple to make. They go great with a cup of coffee. I like them chocolate dipped, or topped with powdered sugar.

I wanted to make Madeline’s, but I realized I didn’t have a mold to bake them in. I didn’t let that stop me. After doing some googling, someone suggested making foil molds. I figured why not use foil to my advantage, and make lady finger shaped Madeline’s.

After mixing the batter I greased parchment paper with butter, and dusted it with flour. Making sure the paper covered the surface of a cookie sheet. Madeline batter spreads as it cooks. This is why a mold is important, but I don’t have one. So i used foil as a wall barrier helping to seperate my cookies while they baked. Otherwise without a barrier I would have a Madeline cookie cake. The foil worked. I was able to enjoy Madeline cookies without a mold. They were the right shape just a little bigger without a crimp. My recipe called for 12 cookies and I made 8.

Don’t let anyone tell you you can’t succeed. Be innovative and achieve your dreams. With a little tweaking I’m sure I can make these cookies form even better next time.So it’s not a myth, you can make Madeline’s without a mold.

Beet Rice Seared Scallops Fish And Broccoli Slaw

Beets are healthy, and tastier than they look. I wanted beets for dinner, but needed a new way to eat them. Ive had beets pureed, pickled, and roasted, but thats it. I saw a recipe for a beet and rice burger so I figured I could make beet rice.

Beet rice is a great simple way to get more beets in your diet. Saute some beets, garlic, onions, and ginger in a little oil. Add some cumin tumeric, salt, and pepper, and Jasmine rice. Boil the rice following the it’s cooking instructions. For a perfect touch once you cook the rice stir in some fresh cilantro. This was delicious. I paired it with sunflower seeds, and bacon, broccoli slaw, and seared scallops and fish. This meal was appealing in color. Filled with a rainbow of healthy vegtables, seeds, and grains. Beet rice is something I’ll definitely make again. If you want to get your kids eating beets this is a great way.

Eating healthy does not have to be a chore. Have fun trying new things, and the world will open up it’s flavor profile to you. Put your own twist on a recipe you like. Match up meals of interest together and find a new cuisine style. You will not regret creating new meals you never knew existed, and being thankful for it.
