TWD - Cowgirl Cornmeal Pecan Financiers



This week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe is Cowgirl Cornmeal Pecan Financiers.  The name is not delicate but these little cakes are.  They contain toasted ground pecans, cornmeal and browned butter, making for  taste sensation.

I had a bit of a shopping excursion for the ingredients for these financiers, as neither cornmeal nor pecans are sold at my regular supermarket.  The cornmeal I understand (it is not an ingredient used that much in Australia), but the pecans I do not.  Coles is the only supermarket where I have reliably been able to get pecans in normal quantities.  The cornmeal came from an IGA, which also sold pecans, but only in industrial quantities.   

I wasn't thrilled at first to be making these financiers, but I changed my mind when I tasted them.  The are light and bursting with flavour.

To see what the other Dorie bakers made this week, visit the LYL section of the TWD website.

I loved the flavours of these when I made them a while ago. This week i switched it up to accommodate allergies. I do love the cornmeal in these, pecans or not!
