My first attempt at veganizing Madeleine Cookies.Good. But not great. I did not like the texture, so I will try again. When I find the texture I am looking for I will share the recipe.

For this attempt I used a powdered egg substitute, but I may have used too much, as the texture was airy; much lighter and more airy than I like. But the flavor was very good. Pleasingly sweet and delicately flavored with lemon. The flavor I choseĀ  was meant to be lemon poppy seed, but instead of poppy seeds, because I didn’t have any, I used chia seeds; and I have to say it was a nice switch.

So to wrap up, the flavor was good- but I felt the texture was lacking. So back to the kitchen and I will try again tomorrow. Perhaps I will try flax seed egg and see if that makes a difference. Meanwhile, the Mr. is happy to be my tester and is enjoying the surplus of cookies!
