Gingerbread Financier topped with Gingerbread Ice Cream and Candy Cane Tuiles

I hope you have enjoyed part I and II of my Holiday trifecta dessert so far.

To recap, we started out with a simple to make, yet sophisticated Tuile cookie. Using a Candy Cane cookie cutter we cut out and sprinkled our tuile cookies with candied goji berries as soon as we took them out of the oven. We also added a little Framboise Liqueur to the simple syrup in which we cooked the goji berries in for a little added punch.

We then moved on to a creamy gingerbread ice cream that contained just enough spice to unite our gingerbread financier and tuile cookie, to create a unique yet very festive holiday dessert.

I know most of you couldn’t wait for the Gingerbread Ice Cream post. But, it surely wouldn’t be a “Trifecta” without the backbone of our dessert… the rich and buttery Gingerbread Financier.

So without further ado… I give you my interpretation of Chef Sherry Yard’s Gingerbread Financier, enjoy!
