In our collection of FRIENDS recipes, we’ve focused mainly on dishes that Monica has made; after all on the show she’s a chef and is forever coming up with delicious meals like her Thanksgiving dinners or her ‘righteous’ Mac and Cheese.
Today, however, we thought we’d focus on something a character who only had a brief role on the show made; Sandy’s madeleines. As any FRIENDS fan would know, Sandy was Rachel and Ross’ male nanny, who was a little too feminine for Ross’ tastes. He played the flute to Emma, teared up when describing his engagement and whipped up a batch of madeleines in the kitchen.
When he hears this, Ross asks why he couldn’t have made manly, butch cookies, but after eating them moons that “they’re lighter than air”.
Just in case you didn’t know, madeleines are French butter cakes. Make some at home and have them as snacks.
