Surprisingly, homemade florentines ship very well. Just wrap two cookies, back-to-back, together. Enjoy them as they are or with some melted semi-sweet chocolate on top.
|Unsalted butter||6 Tbsp|
|Heavy or whipping cream||¼ cup|
|Light corn syrup||1 Tbsp|
|All purpose flour||2 Tbsp|
|Slivered almonds, finely chopped||1 cup|
|Candied orange peel or cherries,||½ cup|
|Semisweet chocolate, melted (optional)||8 oz|
Bake just until set, about 5 – 10 minutes depending on how hot your oven is. Let them cool on cookie sheet for a minute before carefully transferring them to a wire rack.
