Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Blend the sugar and the cream. Stir in the flour, almonds and orange peel. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a heavily creased and floured cookie sheet. Spread mixture into thin circles with a spatula.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) just until the edges are light brown about 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool a few minutes before removing from the cookie sheet, cool.
  4. Chop the chocolate up into small pieces. Melt chocolate over low heat or in the microwave on medium for about 3 minutes. Turn the cooled cookies upside down and spread the bottoms with the melted chocolate. Let cookies stand at room temperature until chocolate is firm, at least 3 hours. Store in a covered container at room temperature or refrigerate.

Good grief! Get this recipe off the website, it's all wrong, terrible. My batter was SOUP and I realized after the fact, when looking at other Florentine cookie recipes, that the heavy cream is never more than a few tablespoons, not almost a cup!!!!!! NO NO NO. I had to throw it all out, wasted perfectly good ingredients, and start all over again...made Florentine cookies from the Foodnetwork, perfect.
