My son’s pre-school Halloween party is coming up next week and I’m excited about making a creepy dessert for his classmates.  Oliver (my little taste tester) has been sampling my Halloween treats all month.  His verdict is…everything has been “too spooky”.  As much as I love making little kids squeel and run away, Oliver has advised me to keep it cute.  I think these Vanilla Mummy Madeleines fit the bill.  They’re so adorable they surely won’t scare the kiddos away.  Not like these devils.  Or these guys.
