Earlgrey Madeleines

Everytime i think of madeleines i remember one of my favorites Jacques Brel's song Madeleine . Madeleines are french classical sweets that are coming in vogue again lately with revisited versions from the biggest French "Chef pâtissier" , so i decided to reinvent the flavors of this popular sweet which is classicaly perfumed with orange blossoms water and replace it with a flowery earlgrey infusion for more depth ...
