Orange & Walnut Florentines


Week two of The Great British Bake Off is Biscuit Week.
I love biscuits! I thought I'd attempt a Florentine as they are more of a special occassion biscuit and worth the extra effort of making yourself.
They were really easy to bake, the chocolate coating at the end can get a little messy though!

You'll need...
45g butter
125ml single cream
125g caster sugar
100g walnut pieces
Zest of 1 Orange
50g plain flour

To make...
Preheat the oven to 160oC
Put the butter, sugar & cream into a saucepan and bring to the boil.
Remove immediately and stir in the nuts, zest & flour
Leave to cool

Scoop a headed teaspoon of the mixture onto lining baking trays, leave about 3cm between each one.
Bake for 20mins, until golden at the edges.
Using a bain-marie melt the chocolate and spread on to the back of each biscuit.
