Pistachio Financier

Financier, also known as Visitandine. These small, golden brick-shaped cakes have a rich history dating back to the 17th century in France. Made with a special blend of blanched almond flour and powdered sugar, the Financier offers a delicate and nutty flavor profile that is simply irresistible. Baked in rectangular molds, these cakes not only look like luxurious lingots but also carry a wonderful texture that is both crisp on the outside and moist inside. The Financier can be made with other nuts as well, offering a versatile twist to this traditional recipe. The secret to the Financier lies in the 'Tant Pour Tant' mixture, where equal amounts of almond flour and powdered sugar are finely powdered to create a smooth and luxurious texture. This preparation opens doors to a range of delightful applications, from macarons to almond cream, making it a staple in French pastry-making.
