The idea is to create fresh vibrant flavors and incorporate them in different forms. Therefore, the crunchy layer has been made with a myriad of styles. We have tried to be innovative by adopting the crusty layer with honeycomb (sponge toffee) while in other using cookie crust and a nut crunchy seeds and so on.
Coveted for their unique flavor Florentines have become the most sorted desserts these days. Though it is assumed that these biscuits belong to the Tuscan region and may have got its name from FLORENCE. But the fact is, this delectable delight was a 17th century French creation made in honor of their Tuscan in-laws.
The main ingredients of a Florentine biscuit are typically French – cream, butter, candied fruits, chocolate, spoonful of flour, cornflakes oats, sweet condense milk. Essentially the base being a roux, none of which are even remotely Tuscan. This signals the connection of this delicate tea time treat.
With innovation though the classic recipe remains the same. Well molded round disc shaped lacey cookies. More twists have been given to the shape and newer additions to the sweeteners like sugar, honey maple and so on. Yet, at the heart, of it we have remained true to creating a simple fuss free Florentine cookie.
