Apricot Financier (Gluten Free)

Not all people are the same, even in the world of sweetness. This recipe is coming from............... This book is devoted to the rice flour because the author wants to create the recipe that suitable for the people who allergic to wheat flour. I really love the idea even I don’t have any member in the family that allergic to wheat flour but using different kind of flour is quite interesting for me. The rice flour and wheat flour are different so it not easy to replace the rice flour for the wheat flour without adjusting the moisture in the recipe, so if you don’t want to use rice flour in this recipe you will need 18g of cake flour than 16g of rice flour.
PS. This is a super small recipe so you can double the quantity if you like.

That dessert looks very very delicious and tempting. But I think I should eat that in moderation or else I will turn to a fatty. =)
