Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup whipping (heavy) cream
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds
  • 1/2 pound candied orange peel, very finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 2 bars (4 ounces each) sweet baking chocolate

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Generously grease and flour cookie sheet.
  • 2
    Stir whipping cream and sugar together until well blended. Stir in almonds, orange peel and flour. Dough will be very thin.
  • 3
    Drop by scant teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Flatten with knife or spatula.
  • 4
    Bake 10 to 12 minutes or just until cookies brown lightly around edges. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
  • 5
    Melt chocolate bars over low heat. Turn cookies over; spread with chocolate. Allow to dry 8 hours at room temperature or until chocolate becomes firm. Store in covered container or in refrigerator.

  • Florentines were invented by Austrian bakers and traditionally contain butter, sugar, cream, honey and candied fruit. Often, one side is dipped in chocolate.
  • Watch these cookies carefully because they brown quickly.
