Chocolate Florentines

« If you have leftover egg whites, you have an excellent reason for making Florentines – exquisite little delicacies that can be enjoyed with an afternoon tea or coffee. Florentines are an improved version of tuile cookies. A lot of dried fruit is added to the cookie dough, and they are then dipped in chocolate once they are cooked. To be nibbled without restraint! »
