Almond Florentine an crunchy eggless recipe made in minutes,that melts in your mouth and the chocolate coating with the underneath is heavenly.
Spring is just around the corner and it is a great feeling to feel it in all its glory. Especially after a harsh and long winter, it’s great to see the buds on the Cherry trees and chirping of the birds. More and more people are getting outdoors.
Weekends are full of activities. It is fun to be outdoor and soak in the bright sunlight. Last weekend since I was alone along with my son, I was kind a feeling lazy to plan any activity for both of us except for eating out.
On of our family friend buzzed me and she had planned to come over to my place along her boy who is of the same age as my son. It was such a great idea and I was thrilled to have them. We decided to go out for lunch and in a very nice restaurant with an absolute great out door setting.
Since she was expecting her second baby, I was kind of curious to know her cravings to see if there was something in my mind’s cookbook to offer her. She had no fascination except for the sinful and evil cakes and cookies!!!!!! Apologies I always refer to them as sinful, but this is one sin that is not on the 10 commandments list.
Long time back I had bookmarked this almond Florentine recipe from my favorite magazine Super food ideas. I have always wanted to try them out but this was a god sent opportunity to try out the Almond Florentine. I always get tempted to see them in the glass jars at the cake shop.
After a long struggle with my conscience eventually I eventually pick up few to quench my temptation. But I hardly find any traces of almond even though the shop boldly advertises Almond Florentines.
Since my first few disappointments I now have started making my own almond Florentines packed with almond and coated with a thin layer of chocolate I am pretty certain I will not get tempted any more or at least so I think.
This almond Florentine is a very simple recipe that hardly calls for any raising agents or eggs. Although I am not a vegetarian but some days of the week I prefer to be a vegetarian these Florentines are a boon and I enjoy them with my morning cuppa!!!!!
I checked my pantry I had everything except Cherries. So I substituted it with dried cranberries. And boy they were great and heavenly !!!!. here goes for all of you sweet natured people and who share my sweet tooth.
