les financiers desserts

Christianne Beasley
Je vais sortir les moules à financiers que j'ai rapportés de France - et qui sont actuellement cachés au fond de ma cuisine - grâce à ce livre ! Les financiers deviennent la base de toutes ces créations gourmandes : un tiramisù, des tartes aux fruits frais, et même une tarte au citron meringuée. Le plus: tous les ingrédients conseillés se trouvent facilement aux Etats-Unis.
