Milk Chocolate Florentine Cookies // These delicate looking cookies are more simple than they look! | Tried and TastyI’ve been wanting to make these cookies for quite some time. Dare I say a couple of years even. I think the first I saw of them was over on my gal Jonna’s blog over at Just Get Off Your Butt and Bake (LOVE her!!!). Yep. Pretty sure I saw her post and have wanted to make them ever since. I never got around to it until now. As I was thumbing through my cookbook I saw them again and was reminded. I thought these would make a perfect Christmas cookie. So here we are! They are delightful. They are also crazy simple. I wish I would have re-visited Jonna’s post before I made them, I like that she used a Symphony bar for her chocolate center. I love Symphony bars. Next time. If you weren’t sure quite yet what to make for your next holiday get together or needed another neighbor gift idea – these are a great fit for either!

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
So, pay careful attention to the detail of: ONE LEVEL TEASPOON THREE INCHES APART. These babies spread like a wildfire. I thought for sure I had made them small enough and spaced them far enough until I looked in the oven and to my surprise I just about had one sheet of a cookie rather than 12 individual ones. Next time I make them I will definitely heed that note. Not that giant cookies aren't fun, I was just looking for more of a dainty cookie instead. They were gobbled up nonetheless.
