Jules Destrooper Florentines
Almond Cookies Dipped in Belgian Chocolate
The Florentine cookie made its debut in Paris, France, in the 17th century. Numerous accounts maintain that the cookie was invented at the Palace of Versailles by King Louis XIV’s master pastry chefs.
Our Almond Florentine cookies begin as light and crispy caramel biscuits, baked into a small elegant cup shape by joining butter, sugar, chopped almonds and candied fruits. Each Florentine is finished with a draping of rich Belgian chocolate that blends a crisp savory cookie with a sweet and nutty flavor. They are the perfect compliment alongside a cup of coffee or enjoyed and cherished on their own.
