After reading Roger’s post about his basal need for delectable financiers, I was eagerly awaiting the weekend to try my hand at Dorie’s recipe. Now, I’m a fan of anything baked with almond flour, but Dorie’s use of “hazelnut butter”, or butter browned till it produces a hazelnut fragrance, shall I say “took the cake”? These little morsels had a crispy, golden, buttery, and chewy exterior that gave way to a moist and cake-y interior. It’s such an easy and rich treat that I’m going to have to pace myself on how often I can make them. Cleanse or no cleanse, these financiers might be a delicious diet dealbreaker.
To check out Roger’s financier recipe, check out the link posted above. Dorie’s financiers were made as a part of French Fridays with Dorie, a group of bloggers who are cooking their way through Dorie Greenspan’s Around My French Table: More Than 300 Recipes from My Home to Yours.
