Blackberry Financiers
From Bon Appetit Magazine 
  • 1/2 cup plus 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 5 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • nonstick vegetable spray or mini muffin liners
  • 2 cups fresh (or frozen, thawed) blackberries, halved
  1. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until browned bits begin to form. Continue to simmer frequently scraping up browned bits at bottom of pan, until dark brown, but not burnt, about 6-7 minutesDo not take your eyes off the saucepan has the butter can burn in an instant.  Scrape the butter and the browned bits into a medium bowl and let it cool for about 5 minutes.
  2. Next, process almonds and flour in a food processor until nuts are finely ground. Transfer to a medium bowl, whisk in 1 1/2 cups plus 2 tablespoons of powdered sugar. Add egg whites and mix until smooth. Fold in honey.
  3. Fold browned butter into batter. Cover and chill for 1 1/2 hours.
  4. Place the rack in the middle and preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat muffin cups with non-stick spray, or use muffin liners for easier release. Fill cups to 3/4 full and press 3 blackberry halves into the batter.
  5. Bake until cakes are golden brown and just cooked through, 15-16 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, and then remove cakes from pan. Dust with powdered sugar just before serving.
