Fresh apricots lightly fried in lavender honey make the perfect accompaniment to delicate financiers. The light, flavorful cakes feature almond flour and brown butter for a rich but subtle flavor. This simple dessert makes for an impressive and beautiful way to end a meal, especially if you top the apricots with a dallop of freshly whipped cream. This dessert can be prepared in just over half an hour, for a quick and delicious meal finale.

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • 130 grams brown sugar
  • 130 grams almond (powder)
  • 20 grams flour
  • 70 grams butter
  • 6 apricots
  • 2 tablespoons lavender honey

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and bring it to a hazelnut color, let cool.
  3. In a bowl, whisk the eggs with the sugar, then add the cooled butter and almond powder. Finally, add the flour and a pinch of salt. Pour the custard into "financiers" molds (previously buttered if they're not silicone molds). Bake for about fifteen minutes. Wait for the "financiers" to cool to unmold.
  4. Separate the apricots in half before serving. In a pan, melt the honey over medium heat. Add the apricot halves, fry them while stirring constantly in order to coat them with honey. Cooking should be fast, only 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Serve each "financier" cookie with three apricot halves in honey.

Everyone loved these cookies. Do not rush the step of browning the butter as that flavor is really what makes these cookies great. I added a dollop of crème fraiche to the apricots and really liked it.
