These Orange and Lime Madeleines are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a sweet snack. Madeleines are typically French cookies, but they also exist in their own versions in other parts of the world. Portugal is an example, I remember eating madeleines as a child and being amazed by the soft texture and the orange flavor. They are tea cakes, perfect to eat for breakfast or a snack, and are super soft. Usually with a citrus aftertaste, either orange, lime or lemon.
