French madeleines (Magdalenas)

French madeleines, the delicious shell-like tea cakes, are always a lovely dessert that also are really easy to make.
They often flavored with vanilla or citrus such as lemon or orange . 
Vanilla is added for a touch of warmth and the butter gives the madeleines a rich flavor.
