Looking for an easy and delicious cookie? Try these low carb Florentines that will please anyone who ever liked chocolate and orange together!

As I currently have some time, I had been searching on the web last week. Trying to find new, challenging thoughts, inspirational recipes that We have never tried before, to surprise my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time but couldn’t come across any interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I found this delicious and easy dessert by luck on Suncakemom. It seemed so yummy on its photo, that called for fast actions.

It absolutely was not so difficult to imagine just how it’s created, its taste and how much my husband will love it. Mind you, it is extremely easy to impress the man in terms of treats. Anyways, I went to the page and used the step-by-step instuctions that had been coupled with superb snap shots of the operation. It really makes life much easier. I can suppose it’s a slight hassle to take pics in the middle of cooking in the kitchen because you normally have sticky hands and so i really appreciate the effort and time she placed in to make this post and recipe easily implemented.

That being said I am inspired to present my own recipe in a similar way. Thanks for the idea.

I was tweaking the initial recipe create it for the taste of my family. I have to mention that it was an incredible outcome. They prized the taste, the structure and enjoyed having a delicacy like this during a hectic workweek. They ultimately wanted lots more, more and more. Thus the next time I’m not going to make the same mistake. I’m likely to multiply the amount .

This Florentines inspired by SunCakeMom.

Grind half of the almonds finely and the other half coarsely.

Put butter and cream in a saucepan to heat it up with the vanilla extract and sweetener.

Pour almond and orange zest and mix them with the other ingredients in the saucepan on low heat.

Preheat the oven to 350°F / 180°C.

Prepare tray with baking paper.

With a spoon put walnut size balls on the tray.

Flatten them with a fork.

Put the tray with the cookies in the preheated oven for about 10 – 15 minutes (depending on the oven).

Take them out as soon as it starts to get a golden brown color.

Place cookies on a cooling rack to cool down with the help of a sharp flat tool. Right now the cookies are a bit brittle so mind them with care. They are supposed to hold together better over time and under some chocolate.

Melt chocolate.

Pour chocolate on top of the cookies.

Keep them in a cool place until chocolate becomes solid again.
