Florentines are a beautiful and delicious thin lacy cookie made with almonds held together with caramelized sugar and then drizzled with chocolate. They are incredibly easy gluten-free cookie to make and perfect for the holidays or even a New Years Eve celebration!
In a large bowl, break up the almond slices a little by hand. Mix with the flour, zest, and salt.
In a saucepan, combine the sugar, syrup, creamer, and butter. Bring to a boil, and then continue to boil for about 2 minutes. Combine with the flour mixture.
Drop by teaspoons onto parchment-lined baking sheets, making sure to spread them out at least 2 – 3 inches apart. (To make them round, allow to cool briefly, then roll with hands to form balls).
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 – 10 minutes until golden brown.
Dip or drizzle with chocolate.
