A Florentine biscuit (or simply, a Florentine) is a sweet pastry of nuts and fruit.
Florentines are made of nuts (most typically hazel and almond) and candied cherries mixed with sugar molten together with butter and honey, cooked in oven. They are often coated on the bottom with chocolate. Other types of candied fruit are used as well. They typically contain neither flour nor eggs.
