It was a very easy recipe to follow, and we only had some assistance from the Kitchen Aid for creaming the butter and sugar as it was still on the firm side as I'd forgotten to take it out of the fridge.
Unfortunately it wasn't until I removed the first batch from the oven that I realised
Oh well, I always wanted to know how to make Florentines! I did manage to scrape it off the pan and the scraps make a delicious topping for yoghurt.....
Anyway, I added flour to the remaining mix and low and behold the next batch turned out how they should.........and even better still? Jack likes them!.....and so does everyone else so now we will be making more, with the other half a can of the condensed milk......and some flour!
