Tracey’s Gluten Free Florentines

Florentines - a gluten free treat

Good things have been happening up in the sunny north.  I have found a kindred spirit in the kitchen department and when she brought her florentines over she became a friend for life!  Florentines have long been a favourite sweet treat of mine but I have never made them, have you?

I did ask the lovely Tracey to share the recipe as they are so good and now there is no excuse not to make them (they are definitely achievable & a crowd pleaser). Up here they need to be kept in the fridge but they didn’t last very long regardless as I inhaled them, yes, yes I did!  Thank you to Tracey for sharing your yummy Gluten Free Florentines.

      I had forgotten how much I love them, now I’ve been reminded I’m going to be making them all the time!
