My husband has a love affair with lemon. So when I saw this recipe in my mom's new Gooseberry Patch cookbook I knew I needed to make them for him. He absolutely loved them. I thought they lacked something, but I am also not a fan of lemon!
Mock Lemon Madeleines
8 oz pkg. cream cheese-softened
1/4 cup margarine-softened
1 t vanilla
18 1/2 oz pkg lemon cake mix
1/2 cup chopped pecans (only mixed in to a few of them for me as hubby doesn't like nuts a lot of the time)
Garnish: Powdered sugar
Blend together cream cheese and margarine; add egg and vanilla. Stir in dry cake mix and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets (I used my silpads); Flatten slightly. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, until bottoms are golden. When cool, sprinkle with powder sugar. Makes about 2 doz.
