2 eggs (at room temperature)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup sifted flour
1/2 cup clarified butter, melted and cooled
Grease and flour well 12 Madeleine shells.
Beat eggs with salt until frothy; then gradually beat in sugar. Beat the mixture at high speed until very thick and lemon colored, about 15 to 20 minutes.
Fold in the flour, 2 tablespoons at a time, and the lemon peel, if desired. Add butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, and fold it in quickly.
Fill shells about 3/4 full, and bake in a preheated 400 degree F oven for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden.
Remove from shells to wire rack to cool.
