I love a good dessert mash-up. Take these Christmas stollen madeleines, for example — brimming with currants, slivered almonds, and candied orange peel, these buttery little cakes are utterly perfect.

This recipe takes the best elements of a traditional stollen loaf — currants, orange, and almonds — and puts them into a bite-sized madeleine. The madeleines achieve a harmonious balance between being rich, sweet, and soft.

Filled with flavorful ingredients like rum, cardamom, and preserved lemon, these stollen madeleines are sure to be a fan favorite at your holiday gathering this year.
