Florentines


Day 13 living without.
This is a no spend day.

We've made these biscuits before, so had the ingredients in the pantry. The first time they turned out really hard, but these ones were a lot better. The oven could go up a bit more and they could be cooked a little longer as these seem soft. and maybe a little less peel could be used too. Over all this recipe was pretty good. Makes about 12.

FLORENTINES

1/2 cup sultanas
2 cups cornflakes
100 g chopped glace cherries
2 tablespoons mixed peel
2/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
250g good -quality dark chocolate

Step 1 Preheat the oven to 170 Degree C. Line 2 large baking trays with non stick baking paper.


Step 2 Combine the sultanas, cornflakes, almonds, place cherries, mixed peel and sweetened condensed milk in a bowl. Place spoonfuls of the mixture on baking trays, leaving enough room between each for biscuits to spread. Bake for 10 minutes until light golden brown, then set aside on wire rack to cool.

Step 3  Melt the chocolate in a bowl over the saucepan of simmering water. Set aside to cool slightly then spread over the underside of the florentines. Use a fork to make wiggly lines in the chocolate, then place, chocolate-side up, on a wire rack until set.


I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.
