How to Make Crispy Walnut and Cranberry Florentines

If you have prepared the ingredients needed, now time to start cooking. There are 38 steps you must follow to make Crispy Walnut and Cranberry Florentines in your home by yourself.

    Step 1
  • Thoroughly chill thedough in the refrigerator for more than 30 minutes.
  • Step 2
  • Use your choice of cookie dough (to yield about 400 g of dough). I recommend this dough, however, since it is very easy to make and does not become hard.
  • Step 3
  • Crush the walnuts into bite sized pieces and spread them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roast them for 15 minutes in an oven set to 340°F/170°C.
  • Step 4
  • Once the walnuts cool to the touch, chop them vertically and horizontally into 5-8 mm pieces.
  • Step 5
  • Cut the cranberries into small pieces. If you prefer a stronger berry flavor, add 30 g more cranberries.
  • Step 6
  • Combine the walnuts and cranberries, and set them aside in a bowl.
  • Step 7
  • Combine all of the ★ ingredients in a pan (I recommend using a pan that doesn't burn easily).
  • Step 8
  • To bake, generally, the baking tray is first lined with a sheet of parchment paper, but instead, I recommend placing the parchment paper over the dough, then flipping it over onto the baking tray.
  • Step 9
  • On your working surface, lay out a sheet of plastic wrap larger than the size of your baking tray, and place the dough from Step 1 on top, then place another sheet of plastic wrap over the dough.
  • Step 10
  • I recommend placing a thin board underneath the plastic wrap under the dough to make the following steps easier.
  • Step 11
  • Roll out the dough with a rolling pin to a size slightly larger than your desired baking size. Remove the plastic wrap from the top, then trim the dough into your desired baking size.
  • Step 12
  • While it depends on your taste, the florentine will be crispier and easier to eat if the dough is rolled thinly (about 3-4 mm).
  • Step 13
  • Place a sheet of parchment paper slightly larger than the baking tray over the rolled out dough, then gently roll your rolling pin over it to make the parchment paper stick to the dough.
  • Step 14
  • Let the dough sit for 15 minutes in the fridge or in the freezer to harden. Since the cookie dough is thin and large, this will make it easier to arrange on the baking sheet.
  • Step 15
  • Once the cookie dough hardens, flip it over onto the baking sheet with the parchment paper still attached to the dough.
  • Step 16
  • I actually roll the dough on my rolling pin and spread it on the baking tray after Step 11, but if that sounds too tricky, I recommend following Steps 9-15, which is easier.
  • Step 17
  • I recommend chilling the dough after rolling it to make it easier to spread out (and flip over) the dough.
  • Step 18
  • Poke holes randomly in the dough after placing it on the baking tray. This will prevent the dough from rising and will help it bake flat.
  • Step 19
  • Bake Step 18 for 20-25 minutes in an oven set to 360°F/180°C. Let the dough cool on the baking tray. In the meantime, prepare the nougat.
  • Step 20
  • Heat up the pan from Step 7 over medium heat while stirring. The ingredients will start to produce tiny bubbles, which will gradually increase to medium-sized bubbles as shown.
  • Step 21
  • The bubbles should become larger and the mixture should become thicker. The color should also slightly become cream-like. Keep your eye on the pan.
  • Step 22
  • Continue stirring the mixture from Step 21 and continue to cook. It should become thicker and the cream color will become darker.
  • Step 23
  • Stir the mixture from Step 22 slightly faster with a spatula while simmering. It should become even thicker, meaning it is almost ready.
  • Step 24
  • Turn off the heat once the mixture resembles the mixture shown here. Be careful not to simmer too long or else it will caramelize to a hard texture.
  • Step 25
  • Add the walnuts and cranberries from Step 6 to the mixture from Step 24 and mix.
  • Step 26
  • Adding the cranberries and walnuts makes the color of the nougat appear darker, but ideally, it should be a light cream color, which is lighter than shown in Step 25.
  • Step 27
  • Evenly spread the nougat from Step 26 over the cookie dough from Step 19. Use a spatula to smooth the surface. The nougat will spread out while baking, so there's no need to be precise.
  • Step 28
  • This photo is an orthodox florentine made with the same amount of cookie dough, using nougat made with just 100 g of sliced almonds.
  • Step 29
  • Bake the nougat topped cookie dough from Step 27 for 25 minutes at 360°F/180°C. The baking time will depends on your oven, so keep your eye on it after baking for about 15 minutes.
  • Step 30
  • This is the florentine with sliced almonds from Step 28.
  • Step 31
  • Don't worry if the surface bubbles a bit after it is finished baking. It will harden naturally. If you bake it too long, the texture will not turn out, and the florentines will be hard to eat, so be careful.
  • Step 32
  • Slide the dough onto a cooling rack from the baking sheet, and let it cool. Once it is cool to the touch, cut it into desired sizes and they are done.
  • Step 33
  • The florentines from Step 28 will become harder and more difficult to cut as the dough cools. Don't forget to set an alarm to ring after 5 minutes.
  • Step 34
  • I cut the walnut florentines into 3 × 8 cm for a handy size to fit the plastic bags that I have, but you can cut them into any size you like.
  • Step 35
  • I don't like hard and sticky florentines. The combination of the crispy, light cookie and the crunchy nougat is so delicious, everybody will love them.
  • Step 36
  • I put each piece in a plastic bag with a package of silica gel, and sealed them with a sealer.
  • Step 37
  • I love both walnuts and cranberries or sliced almond. You can also mix them, of course. Have fun making your own version.
  • Step 38
  • I posted a delicious florentine-style tart. It isfor Florentine Amandines. Give it a try, too.
