Tuesdays with Dorie (Baking Chez Moi): Pistachio and Raspberry Financiers

Dorie Greenspan Pistachio and Raspberry Financiers on eatlivetravelwrite.comThis week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe from Baking Chez Moi is a favourite sweet treat – financiers. These little tea cakes are typically made with almond flour although more and more you see them made with different nuts flours – in this case, pistachios.

Tuesdays with Dorie Greenspan Pistachio and Raspberry Financiers on eatlivetravelwrite.comDorie, like me, uses mini muffin tins to make financiers in, although they are typically made in small rectangular molds like gold bars. It’s said that these snacks were invented in Paris in the financial district by a baker who saw his busy clientele needed a “to go” snack and baked these little cakes so they would be easy to eat on the run. Another story says these cakes were made by nuns who needed to supplement their vegetarian diet with almonds for protein. Whichever story you believe, these are delicious and easy and easily one of my favourite “tea time” treats.

    Delicious, look great and made more attractive as they are not much more than bite size…
