Today’s baking binge ended with a batch of coffee-cardamom financiers out of the Les Petit Sweets cookbook that I can’t recommend enough. This is the second recipe in the book and the reason that I purchased a financier mold. In hindsight I should have bought two molds (and will probably order a second one before I make this again) because two fit on my big cookie sheet.
This recipe calls for 6 egg whites, which means you have six leftover egg yolks to deal with. Since my husband refuses to eat custard and we don’t eat much mayonnaise (the two easiest ways to deal with leftover yolks) I decided to try cartoned egg white (actual egg white, not egg substitute) in the hopes of having less waste. They worked perfectly. If you have access to high quality cartoned egg whites I recommend using them.
These turned out beautifully. They’re a perfect two-bite size and have just enough coffee and cardamom to have aroma and flavor but for it not to be overpowering. They’re also only lightly sweet, even with the dusting sugar, so they’ll be perfect with tea or coffee. These are going to work with me in the morning.

His scent was the most intoxicating and delicious thing you had ever smelt. Musk, a little sweat, cologne, and weirdly enough, french vanilla and cookies. He smelled domineering; like an alpha and you loved it. You were a rare omega, just coming off of your heat when you had first smelled Steve’s scent. Steve could describe your scent as alluring and arousing. Your scent consisted of (fave scent), a little sweat like Steve, perfume, and the smell of an omega just coming off her heat. Tony had introduced Steve to you, noting how both of your scents spiked and left you to converse.
“(Y/n), i want you to meet Steve. Meet my friend-”
Steve whispered out.
His voice sent shivers down your spine and you nodded, blushing under his gaze. Tony had then proceeded to introduce you two then left. Currently, you were sitting in front of Steve on your couch, drinking very expensive, very aged white wine.
“So you are an alpha?”
You asked. Steve shifted and nodded.
“Have you been with an omega as of late?”
Steve shook his head no and suddenly crawled on top of you, nuzzling your bonding point on your neck and smelling you.
“Your scent smells so good. I just wanna hold you and smell you forever, MY omega.”
You blushed and looked up at Steve, gently brushing your fingers along his cheek. Steve nuzzled you and captured your lips, pressing your bodies close and you sighed, holding him to you. Suddenly he stopped, pulling away and snarled loudly. He jumped away from the couch and into a corner, growling out.
You turned, seeing Clint and laughed sheepishly.
He waved and Steve growled, tense. Clint asked.
“Are you two…?”
Steve glared at Clint and pushed you up against the wall, staring at Clint while he kissed you, tongues clashing and you panted when he pulled away.
“Sorry. I’ll uh….I’ll go.”
You waved and Steve whispered to you.
“Mine. My omega. Mine only. I’m sorry if I hurt you…”
You shook your head.
“It’s ok. I…like this.”
You blushed and Steve smiled. He kissed you and whispered huskily in your ear.
