Strawberry Madeleine Cookies Recipe

  • Author: Lauren
  • Total Time: 42 minutes
  • Yield: 24 cookies 1x


Serving you the easiest recipe to get perfect, light and airy Strawberry Madeleine Cookies! This strawberry version is a fun and fresh twist on a classic French madeleine (aka little butter cake). Made with a strawberry puree and dusted with powdered sugar, these are a sure to be a spring favorite!


Units Scale


  • 1 cup fresh strawberries sliced
  • 1 tablespoon sugar


  • 3 eggs
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 10 tablespoons unsalted butter melted & cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup strawberry puree
  • Powdered sugar


  1. Make the strawberry puree. Add 1 cup of fresh (or completely thawed) strawberries and one tablespoon of sugar to a blender and pulse until mixture is completely smooth. You will have more than the recipe calls for. Pro tip: It makes a delicious dipping sauce for the baked ones too!
  2. Make the batter. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, mix together eggs, sugar, and salt on medium speed until the mixture becomes foamy. Lower speed to low and add in flour, 1/2 cup strawberry puree, cooled butter, vanilla extract, and lemon zest.
  3. Chill. Cover and chill batter in fridge for 30 minutes in order to get the signature curved madeleine back when baking.
  4. Bake. Place about 1 tablespoon of batter into each shell in the madeleine pan. Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until madeleines are lightly golden on edges. Let cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar and serve!


To store: These madeleines are best if eaten within 2 days, but can store in the fridge for up to 3 days.
