吃着吃着… 配上絲絲的念親.. 味道。
Steve: I wanted to cook something for Chinese New Year, so chose a very traditional dessert - chocolate financiers! (Okay, so maybe it's a French petit-four, not a Chinese dessert, but no one has complained yet.) Cook's Illustrated and America's Test Kitchen recipes have never let me down.
"Mise en place" - everything out and ready to start mixing.
Dry ingredients ready.
After mixing the molten chocolate, butter, and espresso powder into the dry ingredients. Now, the batter sits for 20-30 minutes.
Time to fill the mini-muffin pan.
Fresh from the oven.
It's so hard to wait for them to cool before sampling. All should have a little dome in the middle, like in the upper right corner. I don't know what went wrong with some - I'll just have to keep making them until I get it right.
Steve: I have no idea what the texture of a financier is supposed to be like. These turned out slightly crispy on the outside, like the edge of a brownie, and a little like fudge on the inside.
Steve 做了甜點，叫什麼 chocolate financiers，很甜，我不喜歡。

We had a wonderful Chinese New Year celebration dinner in Ling & David's house.
