Strawberry Almond Financiers {GF}

February 20, 2017
Strawberry Almond Financiers {gluten-free}| www.brighteyedbaker.com

It’s funny how sometimes the smallest little things can transport you to a different time of your life and bring back memories you probably never thought you’d look back on in the moment. It’s the sort of feeling you get when you hear a certain song or look through old pictures, and it’s also something […]

Raspberry Hazelnut Financiers - Super-soft French hazelnut teacakes studded with juicy raspberries, plus a creamy chocolate-hazelnut center. | www.brighteyedbaker.com

There’s something to say about a recipe you can tweak so many times in just a few little ways and end up with a post-worthy finished product every time. Of c0urse in saying that, I’m admitting to the fact that I sometimes cheat and re-purpose my own recipes over and over, but does it really matter if […]

Peach Financiers {GF}

Peach Financiers - classic French brown butter teacakes with slightly crisp edges and a perfectly soft and moist crumb, filled with a nutty sweet flavor and juicy fresh peaches. | www.brighteyedbaker.com

I think it’s pretty much a given fact that anything involving brown butter is going to taste fantastic. Throw juicy fresh peaches into the mix – peaches tossed in butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon at that – and you’ve gotta know you’re in for something P.D.G. Prior to making these, my favorite peach recipe on the blog […]

YOU GUYS… THIS CAKE. It deserves all-caps, a million exclamation marks, and more; it’s that epic. I’m a very sinful person who waited almost 2 years to share this recipe with all you chocolate-hoarders and cookie dough-lovers out there (I don’t know what’s wrong with me, honestly), but finally it’s out. You can thank me anytime. […]

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie

Chocolate Chip Skillet Cookie:  A giant brown butter chocolate chip cookie complete with crunchy edges and a gooey center - perfect for feeding a crowd! | www.brighteyedbaker.com

All Mondays should begin with a giant chocolate chip cookie staring you in the face, am I right? Bonus if said cookie is: 1) easier, and 2) faster, to make than a batch of normal-sized cookies, because if there’s ever a day that calls for a give-it-to-me-quick-and-easy giant cookie, it’s gotta be Monday. Chocolate therapy […]

Chocolate Financier: Moist and tender, brownie-like, mini chocolate tea cakes - a classic french treat that's naturally gluten-free. | brighteyedbaker.com

For the past week I’ve had this weird schedule which involved eating breakfasts in a dorm dining hall at 8AM, getting in a workout and a shower once I was awake enough to function, and finally getting a good cup of coffee at around 2PM when I could make my way to a cafe looking […]

Brown Butter White Chocolate-Chocolate Chunk Cookie Dough Truffles - aka your legitimate excuse to eat cookie dough for dessert tonight. ;) | www.brighteyedbaker.com

I’d just like to put it out there that whoever first came up with the idea of cookie dough truffles is a total GENIUS. Chocolate chip cookies are like the key to my ♡, and as much as I adore them warm from the oven, loaded with pools of ooey-gooey chocolate, the dough is really where it’s […]

Strawberry Apple Crumble - a wam, nutty crumble that combines juicy summer berries with crisp fall apples in the best way possible.  | www.brighteyedbaker.com

You guys? Summer is soooo not over. Everybody seems to think it is though, and I keeping seeing pumpkin recipes popping up around the web, fall treats appearing at coffee shops, and all this other goodbye-summer hello-fall craziness. I’m all for the temperature dropping a little below three digits and I love everything pumpkin as much as the next person, […]

I seriously don’t know where the time is going. I just know that there doesn’t seem to be enough of it right now, which is why I’ve been sort of off-the-radar for the past week plus. I’m back though, with cookies, because… you just have to make time for cookies. Duh. BUT, today isn’t just about the […]

How is it that it’s been more than two weeks since I started talking about this hazelnut recipe? There I was, being all efficient and explaining how to toast and skin hazelnuts in preparation for this post, and then… woah… two weeks go by and the post still isn’t up. Kinda like how it’s already […]
