Classic madeleines -- those perfectly delicate shell-shaped cookies -- are flavored with lemon or orange zest, but variations include chocolate, cocoa, almond paste, or nuts. Baked in scallop-shaped molds, these cookies are tender with a tight-grained interior and a delicate crust.

    The wonderful part about being a creative cook and knowing history is the variations added to a receipes. Personally I've never had a lemon Madeleines, but I know they exist as well.
