Description

Sort of a cross between a quick bread and a soft and tender cookie, these delightful treats--which resemble French madeleines a bit in their taste and texture--are perfect for serving with afternoon tea, tucking into a kid's lunchbox, or offering as a not-too-sweet dessert after a weeknight meal. Grated lemon zest and fresh lemon juice flavors the batter--and results in a wonderfully fragrant cookie. Dust with powdered sugar, if desired.
