Ingredients list


  • 300 g pastry flour
  • 200 g butter soft
  • 100 g sugar
  • 1 packet vanilla sugar



  • Put the flour, sugar, softened butter and vanilla sugar in the mixing bowl of the stand mixer and mix thoroughly with the dough hook until a smooth dough is formed.

My tip

If you like it even more fancy, you can additionally drizzle the Florentines with liquid chocolate after baking.
