Enjoy these very French spongy cake-like cookies the day they are made.

2 large eggs
1/2 vanilla bean, halved lengthwise
5 tablespoons sugar
7 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

Madeleines Recipe at
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Brush nonstick madeleine pan with 12 indentations with softened butter. Place eggs in large metal bowl. Using small sharp knife, scrape moist seeds from vanilla bean into eggs. (Reserve pod for another use.) Using electric mixer, beat eggs until pale. Gradually mix in sugar and beat until ribbon forms, about 4 minutes. Sift flour and salt over eggs and gently fold in just until blended. Fold in melted butter. Spoon batter into indentations of prepared pan.

Bake until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Turn out onto rack and cool completely. Sift powdered sugar over madeleines.

VARIATION: For orange-vanilla madeleines, add 1 teaspoon grated orange peel to batter.
