Florentine Cookies - Egg and Eggless Recipe

Florentine Cookies – It has been a non-stop festive season. And this week is Chinese New Year Celebration. I made lots of cookies to give away.

This cookie is so delicious, with nougat on top with butter cookie crust on the bottom.

I hope you’re inspired to make this. Not difficult at all, preparation and baking time will take maybe 1.5 hours.

Cookies Base

Eggless version

  1. Continue with the preheated oven.
  2. In a large bowl, mix butter, sugar, and salt until creamy and pale.

Almond Caramel

  1. In a pot, add butter, sugar, honey, corn syrup, and heavy cream.
  2. Cook over medium heat until butter melted and bring it to a boil.
  3. Then lower the heat and continue cooking until the sauce is thickened and the volume will decrease.
  4. Then add in the roasted flakes and seeds. Continue cooking until the mixture is thick and gluey.
  5. Remove from the heat.
  6. Immediately transfer over the crust.
  7. Use a spatula to spread the mixture as evenly as possible.
  8. Bake in a preheated oven at 170°C/340°F for about 15 min or until the brown you desire.
  9. Cut the cookie while it’s still a little warm. Once it’s completely cooled, the cutting will be slightly more difficult.
  10. I used a bread knife to cut as it will give a straight and neat slice.
  11. Store them in an airtight container or box them to giveaway.
