Latin Lace Florentines are a nice change from the traditional Florentine cookies. Latin Lace Florentines cookies are made from a thin, buttery batter that results in a crisp lacy texture with festive holiday look and feel. A surprising hint of chili powder nicely balances the crisp texture and slight sweetness. The chili powder does not make the cookie “hot”. Instead it enhances the flavor of the chocolate and adds a sturdy flavor on your palate. Try experimenting with your favorite chili powder when making these outstanding cookies.
What does “Florentine” mean? The word Florentine, or the term la Florentine, refers to a recipe that is prepared in the style of the Italian region of Florence. But, despite the name, you are more likely to find these cookies in a French patisserie (a French bakery).
