A light pastry for early morning coffee or a little mid morning or afternoon break.
Financier is a light and dainty tea cake. Sydney, my daughter, and I first experienced this treasure in St. Germain this past March. As soon as I returned to Colorado I began experimenting with recipes to develop the perfect one.
I love working with egg whites and creating desserts that egg whites are part of the major ingredient.
The Financier is baked with sugar, egg whites, butter that is toasted( which is amazing), almond flour and optional all-purpose flour or for gluten free, rice flour. The batter is then piped into a special financier baking sheet, however if you do not own one mini muffin tins, baby loaf pans, mini cheesecake pans, use your imagination all work for making these delicious treats!
