Vickys Festive Florentines, GF DF EF SF NF step by step
- Preheat the oven to gas 4 / 180C / 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Put the syrup, sugar and butter in a saucepan.
- Melt until the sugar has completely dissolved.
- Take the pan off the heat and stir in the remaining ingredients until well coated with the syrup mixture.
- Drop heaping teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto the baking sheet. I do 2 batches of 9 so they have plenty of room to spread out.
- Bake for 12 minutes until the florentines have flattened and spread out and are bubbling around the edges.
- If they haven't flattened enough they'll still be soft and you can use a spoon to pat down the tops and tidy round the edges to make them neater if you wish.
- Let sit on the tray for a good 5 minutes then carefully transfer to a wire rack to fully set.
- If you want to be fancy, melt some safe chocolate and coat the bottoms of the florentines. Let set upsides down on a wire rack.
