Gingerbread Madeleines

I love Gingerbread and I love Madeleines. So...... here's a great recipe combining the two loves!
They're a great cookie for any Christmas Party.

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
1 - 12 count Madeleine Pan brushed well with Pan Release Mix. (equal parts of Crisco,Vegetable Oil and Flour) I start with 1 C of each, mixed well and refrigerated in a jar. I always have it available for all of my baking needs.
1 recipe of glaze. (recipe to follow)

Gingerbread Madeleines:

2 Eggs
1/3 C Sugar
1/8 tsp Salt
1/2 C Flour
1/4 C Butter, melted and cooled.
1 tsp Vanilla
2 TBS Molasses
1/2 tsp Pumpkin Pie Spice
1/8 tsp Ground  Ginger

In a Stand Mixer with a paddle attachment:
Beat for 5 minutes.
Pumpkin Pie Spice
Beat until well combined.
By hand, fold in Flour and Butter alternately in 3 additions.
Spoon about 3 TBS of batter into each well of the pan.
Bake 7 - 8 minutes. They should spring back to the touch.
Remove the pan to a rack and cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to the rack and cool completely.
Place the rack of cookies on a Sheet Pan and drizzle them in a Zig Zag design with glaze.

In a small mixing bowl:
1/2 C Confectioner's Sugar
1 TBS Light Corn Syrup
2 tsp Water
1 drop of White Food coloring.
Whisk until smooth and well combined.

Peace in the Kitchen!
