Savory Madeleines

Parmesan, Garlic & Chive Madeleines, Chive Blossom

I've definitely been venturing into the savory side a little more than usual during the past few weeks.  Although these madeleines are baked goods, they aren't the conventional little sweets you would expect.  I've altered my go-to madeleine recipe by omitting half the sugar, infusing garlic and adding parmesan and chives.  Like all madeleines, they are best served warm, however, the crisp edges hold up fairly well for a day.
