Number 24: Honey strawberry financiers

I miss home. And slow breakfasts with the light streaming in just so.

Strawberry honey mini financiers
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/2 cup walnuts, grounded
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 egg whites
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter
1/4 cup honey
12 small strawberries

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Grease mini-muffin tin and set aside.
1. Cut butter into four pieces. In a saucepan, melt the butter. Stir constantly and warm until it browns and smells nutty.
2. Strain the butter in a clean bowl, set aside.
3. In a mixing bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, walnuts and salt
4. Add the egg whites and mix until it just comes together
5. Mix in butter.

6. Mix in the honey
7. Divide evenly in a mini-muffin tin.
8. Top each with a halved strawberry
10. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes.
11. Let cool and then remove from tin.

Note: If using regular muffin tins, bake for 16 to 18 minutes.

Also, crushed walnuts using a knife and a rolling pin. Thanks to Mayra and Matt and Roomie for helping.
