Financiers - FFwD
This week's French Friday's with Dorie was a delicious simple treat. Designed originally in a small gold bar like pan to appeal to the Frenchman on the go in the financial district. It was an easy batter made with browned butter and sugar, almond flour and all purpose flour and a lot of egg whites. As instructed, I chilled it over night and then had difficulty filling the pans, the batter was so thick. I really enjoyed these simple treats.
This is Murphy, looking especially large in her winter coat. She is my son's Portuguese Water Dog. She spent the first months of her life on a farm, eating fresh eggs. When I begin to bake, she comes running when she hears the egg carton open, ever hopeful for the extra egg white or egg yolk. She thinks that we should make financiers more often.
