Financiers [143/366]

Ever have one of those crappy days where nothing goes right and nothing you do is right? Yup. I'm sure you have! Today was one of those days for me. Maybe it's the rain?

When I have one of those days and I'm depressed, I cook. Well, specifically, I bake. I'm not much of a baker, but it does relax me and remind me of simpler times which chase the blues away.

These little beauties are Blackberry Financiers. Basically little muffins with blackberries. The dough is made with almonds, so they have a wonderful nuttiness to them.

Lighting wise, I did backlighting. This looked great, but too dark. So, I added a side light as fill. Had I baked these during the day, I would have used window light and a lot of bounce fill.

Delish, either way.

Here's to Hump Day, tomorrow!
