Thank you for reviewing this recipe.
k.i.s.s. principle fellow bakers!
wow all these creative inventive ideas on how to spread the cookie dough (which you definitely need to do!) and really none of them work the way they should ~ I moistened my fingertips a little & spread them MANUALLY ~ took about 10 seconds & works like a charm oh & whoever rated this as lacking flavor probably over or underbaked them. there is really a fine line between underdone, perfect & overdone on these, like seconds of baking time.
I made thsese cookies and they were very good. However, I had a lot of trouble getting them off of the foil. I switched to parchment paper and it was SO much easier.
The cookies are requested every year by all my cookie swap friends. They are awesome in every way, and an easy dough to prepare. My advice for easy baking - using stoneware cookie sheets, and line with parchment paper. Need to let them sit a few minutes to stiffen up, then they come right off. I've never had luck with the foil lined pans for these cookies.
Tips for making cookies
Instead of spreading the dough with a spatula, I place a piece of plastic wrap on top of the dough and press down with a glass to flatten it. I also lightly spray the aluminum foil with nonstick spray(and spread it with a paper towel) and don't wait until the cookie is totally cold before taking off the cookie sheet. This enables me to use the foil over again. I made these for Christmas again, and didn't have any issues at all. Everyone loves them
Chocolate Florentine Cookies
These were so good and so easy to make. The first batch were big I didn't know they would spread like they did, but that was just as good I used them for a gift and every one raved.
