Looking for an easy and delicious cookie? Try these low carb Florentines that will please anyone who ever liked chocolate and orange together!

As I most recently have some time, I had been surfing on the web a few days ago. In search of fresh, challenging tips, inspirational recipes that I have never tried before, to impress my family with. Searching for a while yet couldn’t discover any interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I stumbled on this delicious and easy dessert simply by accident over Suncakemom. It seemed so delicious on its snapshot, it required quick action.

It had been easy to imagine just how it’s made, how it tastes and just how much my hubby is going to love it. Mind you, it is very simple to please the guy when it comes to desserts. Yes, I am a blessed one. Or maybe he is.Anyways, I went to the blog and simply used the step by step instuctions that have been accompanied by wonderful pictures of the procedure. It just makes life faster and easier. I could imagine that it’s a bit of a inconvenience to take snap shots in the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you typically have gross hands so I highly appreciate the time and effort she put in to build this blogpost .

That being said I’m inspired presenting my own, personal recipes in a similar way. Many thanks the idea.

I was fine tuning the main mixture create it for the taste of my family. I must mention that it was a great outcome. They loved the flavor, the structure and loved having a sweet like this in the midst of a busy week. They quite simply requested even more, more and more. So next time I’m not going to commit the same mistake. I am likely to multiply the volume to keep them delighted.

Place cookies on a cooling rack to cool down with the help of a sharp flat tool. Right now the cookies are a bit brittle so mind them with care. They are supposed to hold together better over time and under some chocolate.
