Pistachio & Rose Sugar Madeleine

Madeleine. That little delicate French butter tea cake known for itโ€™s beautiful and distinct scalloped shell shape.

Flavours for Madeleines are endless from sweet to savoury, but we like ours with pistachio, a hint of cardamom and garnished with a delicate rose scented sugar.

Itโ€™s the prettiest tea time treat for Eid.

Enjoy Lots Of Love ๐Ÿ’—
