Peppermint Florentine Cookies
These Peppermint Florentine Cookies (or Lace Cookies as they are also known) are sandwiched with melted chocolate and decorated on the outside with even more chocolate and crushed candy canes. These delectable lace cookies are destined to be your new Christmas or Holiday favorite!
The thin, crispy lace cookies (or lace biscuits for my U.K friends) are delicious on their own, but sandwiching them with chocolate makes them truly next level. Whether you’re a dark, milk or white chocolate fan they are sure to be the hit of your next holiday social gathering.
For all the different chocolate lovers in all of us, I have dark or milk chocolate Florentine Cookies, also White Chocolate Florentine Cookies, which all work well with the peppermint option. For a year-round treat, choose your favorite version!
This particular peppermint variation are truly festive and perfect for the holiday season. Peppermint extract is added to the cookies, then crushed candy canes are ‘glued’ to the outside using melted chocolate to further drive home the cool peppermint flavor.
Again, the choice of chocolate is completely up to you. In addition to being the glue to hold them together, your chocolate choice is also drizzled on the top which helps keep the crushed candy canes in place once the chocolate has cooled. You simply cannot miss out on making these delicious confections for this holiday season!
The lace cookies themselves are made with finely chopped raw almonds. You will have to peel the almonds before blending them, but never fear – I have a really easy method to peel almonds. If you can find them already peeled (also known as blanched) that’s a surprise bonus.
