Ingredients
  • 75g unsalted butter
  • 75g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp clear honey (or golden syrup)
  • 75g plain flour
  • 75g dried cranberries
  • 50g glace cherries, quartered
  • 50g mixed dried peel
  • 50g flaked almonds
Method
  • Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160 Fan/Gas 4. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

  • Put the butter, syrup, sugar and honey or syrup in a pan. Heat gently, stirring, until the butter has melted and all the sugar has dissolved.

  • Remove the saucepan from the heat. Stir in the flour, cranberries, cherries, mixed peel and almonds.

  • Put heaped teaspoonfuls of mixture on the baking tray, leaving plenty of space between each one to allow the Florentines to spread during cooking. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden. Leave for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
