Florentines for GBBO Week 1

Florentines for the Great British Bake Off week one bake-along challenge. In case you missed my earlier post, I’m participating in a Facebook group that is baking along with this season of GBBO. Every week the moderator chooses one of the three rounds as our challenge. I felt like this was a bit of a slow start, but ok, it’s good to warm up before getting into crazier bakes.

I went straight traditional, following Mary Berry’s recipe. The only change was, I didn’t have any candied peel, or oranges to peel and candy, so I just used more craisins in place of the peel.

They came out… fine. I have to say, they aren’t really my style of cookie. They were tasty, I mean, there’s plenty of sugar and chocolate enough that how bad could they be? To be honest, they probably aren’t something I’d make again unless requested.
