Serves 12 financiers :
200 g unsalted butter, diced
150 g ground almonds
5 egg whites
60 g plain flour
170 g icing sugar (see recipe)
pinch salt
pinch baking powder
½ tsp bitter almond extract
½ tsp pistachio butter
30 pistachios, roughly chopped
+ 10g for the decoration
1Preheat the oven to 180°C (170°C fan, gas mark 4).
2Put the butter in the metal bowl and run the EXPERT programme for 2 minutes/ speed 3/80°C. Add the flour, ground almonds, sugar, salt, baking powder, bitter almond extract and pistachio butter; run the PASTRY/CAKE programme.
3Scrape the mixture into the centre of the bowl using a spatula, and restart the PASTRY/CAKE programme adding the egg whites and the 30g chopped pistachios through the opening.

Chef’s tip

If you cannot find pistachio butter, use 1 tsp pistachio flavouring and a few drops of food colouring instead.​
