Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's chocolate macaroons. Gorgeous! Great way to use egg whites left over from other recipes. Recipe called for ground almonds. I only had half the quantity needed so added desiccated coconut to make up the weight. V happy with the result!

A financier is a small French cake, often mistaken for a pastry. The financier is light and moist, similar to sponge cake, and usually contains almond flour, crushed or ground almonds, or almond flavoring. The distinctive feature of the recipe is beurre noisette (brown butter). Other ingredients include egg whites, flour, and powdered sugar. Financiers are baked in shaped molds, usually small rectangular loaves similar in size to petits fours.
