Cowgirl Cornmeal Pecan Finaciers

7 Comments

IMG_7110Cowgirl Cornmeal Pecan Financiers from Dorie Greenspan’s Baking Chez Moi cookbook, are simple, honest and I think I ate an entire tray of 12 mini muffin sized bites all by myself.
I loved these!
There are some nuts my nut allergic children can tolerate and luckily, pecans are one of them! I loved eating the pecans straight off the tray as they came out of the oven, toasty, fragrant and warm. And I loved the strong pecan flavour that builds in your mouth as you bite into the financiers.

They were simple to make and easy to eat 🙂
Eaten warm, their texture is light and airy. Once they are cold, the texture becomes heavier and more dense however the flavour is not compromised. I am waiting for the kids to come home from school so I can bake another tray of 12. Or maybe 24…
I love having the batter in the fridge ready to cook, makes me feel very domestic goddess like (laughing).
Looking forward to reading about the thoughts of the rest of the Tuesdays with Dorie group!

  1. Aren’t these just so good? Yours are really cute too!

  2. I must have done something wrong as mine were not light and airy but dense and rich. We still liked them and like you I bake off a dozen at a time. Hope the kids enjoyed them. New kitchen in full working order?

  3. I’ve made these already and thought the toasted pecan flavour was the best thing about them.

  4. these are good–so glad they can be enjoyed by your kids, too!

  5. How nice for you to finally move into the new house! Yay! Your financiers are so cute…nice picture!
