Today for lunch (don’t judge me!) I was indulging in my favorite cookie in the world: honey almond florentines! I have a healthy whole grain kale-ridden meal in the microwave, too. But before I made that choice, I thought “Oh, I’ll just have one while I making something better to eat.” I love the lacey but crunchy almond yumminess with a layer of chocolate so much, I never buy them because they don’t last long in my house! I think, “I’ll just have one, they’re thin!” And then, “Oh, maybe I’ll have one for dessert, too. I mean, I was good and ate the kale thing. I deserve a little dessert.” And so it goes . . . until they’re not allowed to come in the door anymore!
Interestingly, as I sat down with “just one” cookie to write this blog, I thought these are perfect but they’d be even MORE perfect if there was some kind of fruit layer on top. Then I popped over to the Almond Board of California’s website and there was a recipe for Honey Almond Florentines with candied orange visible on top!
Oh yes! That’s today’s recipe for sure! I mean, that coincidence MUST be a sign, right? So here we go! Don’t shoot me if you try them. I warned you that they’re addicting!
