Pumpkin Madeleines

I honestly think madeleines are the easiest cookies to make, they take 30 minutes only start to finish. Their dense texture is irresistible, looking fancy this salted caramel apple madeleines carry a little fall flavor while still maintaining their original soft and buttery crumble.

Last week I made a pumpkin flavor that tasted delicious as well, but apple and caramel its where my heart stands in terms of fall flavors. I am always so excited when caramel apples start popping up in stores, they are the perfect healthy yet indulgent treat. These salted caramel apple madeleines deliver that flavor in a sweet, melt in your mouth cookie form.
