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 recently have a little time, I was surfing on the web yesterday. In need of new, exciting tips, inspirational dishes that We have never used before, to impress my loved ones with. Looking for quite some time unfortunately couldn’t find any interesting stuff. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I stumbled on this delicious and easy treat simply by chance. The dessert looked so delightful on its photo, it called for instant actions.

It absolutely was easy to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and how much my hubby will like it. Actually, it is rather simple to impress the man in terms of treats. Yes, I’m a lucky one. Or possibly he is.Anyways, I got into the site: Suncakemom and then followed the step by step instuctions that have been coupled with wonderful photographs of the process. It really makes life faster and easier. I could imagine that it is a slight inconvenience to take photographs down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you may normally have gross hands and so i seriously appreciate the time and energy she placed in for making this blogpost .

That being said I am empowered presenting my own recipe in a similar way. Many thanks the idea.

I was fine tuning the original formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I have to tell you it had been a great outcome. They loved the flavor, the structure and loved getting a sweet such as this in the midst of a busy week. They quite simply wanted even more, many more. Thus next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I’m gonna twin the volume to get them delighted.

This was inspired by Florentines Cookies from 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.
