Chef Andre's FinanciersChristmas Baking with SusieJ

Measurements [metric]

  • 1 1/2 c sugar
  • 3/4 c cake flour
  • 5 1/2 oz almond powder
  • 9 1/2 oz Egg whites
  • 1 1/3 Tbs honey
  • 1 1/8 c Butter

Mix together sugar, flour and almonds. Slowly add egg whites, then honey.

Cook the butter until golden brown and has the smell of almond flavor. Pour the cook butter into the batter and whisk it slow to moderate speed by hand. (You will need two people for this step.) Refrigerate the batter overnight for easy piping. Pipe in a FLEXIPAN #1117 3/4 to top. Bake right away @ 240 degrees C or until golden brown. Remove from pan and set cool. Dip the cookies in melted chocolate and ready to serve.

This type of cookies came from Northern France. My French Chef gave it to me, and I would to share this recipe to you.
