White Chocolate Dipped Florentines (and a Giveaway)!
Serves: 24 cookies
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • 1 cup quick oats
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ⅓ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 Tbsp corn syrup
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 (10 to 12 oz bag) white chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • zest of 2 medium oranges
  • ½ cup whole cranberries
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Once it is melted, remove from heat.
  3. Add the oats, sugar, flour, corn syrup, milk, vanilla and salt to the pot and stir until everything is well combined.
  4. Onto the baking sheet, drop rounded teaspoons of cookie batter. Only have 6-8 cookies per baking sheet as cookies will spread. With the back of a spatula, flatten the cookies slightly.
  5. Bake for 8 minutes, then remove from the oven. Cool slightly on the sheet, then transfer to a cooling rack.
  6. Create a double boiler on your stove to melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil. Melt while stirring with a rubber spatula. Once melted and combined, turn off the stove.
  7. Zest the oranges and finely chop the cranberries (use a food processor if you have one).
  8. Dip each cookie in the chocolate and then place on the cooling rack. Sprinkle cranberry pieces and orange zest on the chocolate before it sets.
