Lemon glazed madeleines

Y was showing me how madeleines are made. She used the lemon glazed madeleines recipe from David Lebovitz. Funny how the batter and pan needs to be chilled overnight. Y made the batter the night before and baked them the next morning. I sat in front of the oven whilst they baked and watched them rise in the oven. Apparently the bump on the madeleines are suppose to be pointy but hers came out round-ish. I think the round-ish bump looked quite nice.
The madeleines turned out to be super sweet cause of the glaze but they tasted good and look pretty so I'll definitely try making different flavoured ones.
