I finally broke down and bought a Madeleine pan πŸ™‚

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 :-).

Then I made this recipe. 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. 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.

I love that this Madeleine pan can bake a dozen cookies at the same time!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Tart with Dark Rum


  1. I’d say you made a good purchase with your new pan. This recipe looks great!

  2. Tell me there is a good kind of pan I can as a substitute these look and sound so yummy, I’d love to make for Thanksgiving.

  3. I’m such a kitchen gadget junkie so I would say that purchase is well justified! These look delicious!

  4. Would you say more sorghum or brown rice would work in place of the corn flour for corn-intolerant folks?

  5. This look positively divine!! I would love to try them right now! πŸ™‚

  6. Thank you for the recipe! Can I omit the Xanthan gum or use flax as a substitute?
