Florentine Cookies



These deliciously sweet, crunchy, and crispy cookies go incredibly well with any warm beverage or snack. With a salty-sweet caramel taste, these cookies are sure to wow any of your friends. Also, they would be perfect for a last minute Christmas present.


As always, these cookies start with loads of butter, but honestly, how would food ever be so delicious?


Recipe:


1 1/2 cups raw almonds

1/2 cup brown sugar

7 tbsp unsalted butter

1 tsp salt

3 tbsp flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF

  2. In a food processor, blend the almonds until they resemble small stones, about 1 cm in diameter.

  3. Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add the sugar. Once boiling, remove from heat and let cool slightly.

  4. Add the flour to the butter/sugar mixture, and stir until fully combined. Add in the blended almonds and fold until homogeneous.

  5. Scoop about 2 tsp of the mixture onto a parchment-lined baking sheet. No need to flatten out the dough, it will significantly flatten out when baking.

  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes until slightly browned.

  7. Let cool for at least 1 hour until crispy.

  8. Enjoy!

Note: These cookies taste better after 1-2 days, because the butter dries out making them extra crunchy.
