This week was a week of baking fails. SO MANY FAILS! I tried to bake vegan, gluten-free cookies with sorghum flour and that ended badly. I could taste the flour and it was just so chalky and gross! Then I tried to make chocolate chip cookies with Indian whole wheat flour and that turned out even worse. All in all, I threw out like 4 batches of cookies. I desperately needed a win- you know– something to boost my morale. I started searching the internet for quick and easy cookie recipes and stumbled upon almond florentines.
The recipe seemed simple enough. Just heat 5 ingredients and stick it in the oven. How hard could it be? Well, luckily for me, it wasn’t hard at all! I loved how they turned out!
I did try to use a chocolate transfer sheet to get a pretty design on the bottom of the cookies, which didn’t work out at all. Only part of the design transferred onto the bottoms. Womp.. womp. At least they tasted good! Which is more than I can say for my earlier bakes!
