If you like Madeleines, here is a delicious gluten free version that is perfect for fall! One bite of these soft cake-like Gluten Free Pumpkin Madeleines and you will be hooked too! These little Madeleines are also dairy free!
Decoration possibilities are endless, we chose to make these cute little mice :-).
I finally broke down and bought a Madeleine pan :-)!
It was one of those things I really couldn’t justify buying in the past. My husband sort of laughed at me when we were shopping. “Why would you want to make fancy shaped cookies?” he asked. Ha, he doesn’t know me as well as he thought :-).
Halloween Party Cookies:
Well, why not? And while I was at it, I turned these Dairy Free, Gluten Free Pumpkin Madeleines into cute little mice for Halloween. These little cake-like cookies will be the hit of your party!
These cookies are moist with crispy edges. They have just the right amount of pumpkin flavor to balance out the dark chocolate. They are absolutely delicious!
I hope you enjoy these as much as our family did. Feel free to dip them in chocolate if you don’t want to make little mice out of these cookies!”
Dipping in the dark chocolate was a little more challenging because my chocolate melted really thick. Next time I think I would just drizzle the chocolate on.

Ideas for Decorating Your Madeleines
- To decorate your Madeleines like mice, grab full almonds and some candy googly eyes. You can follow this fun tutorial if you prefer to make your own googly eyes. I used a tube of icing that I bought (usually used for writing on cakes) to adhere my googly eyes. For the tails, I used black bean pasta.
- Dust with Powdered sugar.
- Dip them in chocolate!
