    Heat oven to 375°F. Grease and flour twenty-four 3-inch madeleine molds. Beat egg white in small bowl with electric mixer on high speed until foamy. Beat in 1/4 cup of the granulated sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time. Continue beating until stiff and glossy; set meringue aside.

    Fill molds two-thirds full. Tap pan firmly on counter to remove air bubbles. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are light brown. Cool slightly before removing from pan. Cool on wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar just before serving.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cookie or cake? Madeleines are small, feather-light cakes that are eaten like cookies. They get their characteristic shape from a special pan with scallop-shell indentations.
  • tip 2
    Look for madeleine pans in the cooking equipment section of a department store. Or try a cake decorating or gourmet food store.
