Walnut Financiers


  • 140 g unsalted butter

  • 200 g icing sugar

  • 90 g ground walnuts

  • .5 cup Flour

  • 5 egg whites unbeaten

  • 2 tablespoons cognac or 1 teaspoon vanilla


  • 1.

    Melt the butter in a small saucepan and set aside to cool.

  • 2.

    Mix together the sugar, powdered walnuts, and flour.

  • 3.

    Stir in the egg whites and Cognac.

  • 4.

    Finally, whisk in the butter.

  • 5.

    Heat the oven to 450ºF/230ºC.

  • 6.

    Fill the financier or mini muffin tins three-quarters full only, and bake five minutes.

  • 7.

    Reduce the oven temperature to 400ºF/200ºC and continue baking until they are golden on top, and a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean, about 10 minutes.

    If you’re working in batches, don’t forget to turn the oven back up to starting temperature before putting them in.

These were so quick to make. I loved the fact that there was no need to beat the egg whites. Very simple.I didn't have the financier tins but half filled a normal muffin tin. I used almonds as I didn't have walnuts in the pantry. They turned out very delicious.
