Honey Florentines

These delicate Italian cookies taste almost like caramel. They go perfect alongside a cup of hot tea or coffee. Make sure to space them apart when baking so they have room to grow and become as thin as they should be. I love baking with honey as it is one of the oldest things we have on earth. It dates back to 5500BC. In addition, you may never want to leave the kitchen; they cook extremely fast and burn even faster.

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1-1/2 tablespoon honey
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Pinch sea salt

1. Pre-heat oven to 375 F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper or baking mats.

2. In a small saucepan over low-medium heat add butter, brown sugar and honey, stir until well blended. In a medium sized bowl add sugar mixture and flour; mix well with a spoon until blended.

3. Place 1/2 teaspoon of mixture on baking sheet, making sure each spoonful is 3 inches away from one another so they have room to bake. Bake 3-4 minutes, until edges are golden. Cool cookies on baking sheet on a wire rack.

Yields: 15 cookies
