      These cookies are superb! They taste like a light, crispy butter brickle enrobed in chocolate and are just as good as the expensive florentines you can buy at Trader Joe's. Best of all, they're sooo easy to make! Pay careful attention to the instructions about spacing the dough balls at least 3-inches apart, because even if you flatten them out they'll spread like crazy as they bake. I used the smallest cookie scoop from Pampered Chef (equal to about 2 level teaspoons) and the cookies spread out to 4 inches in diameter. Follow the recipe exactly, though, and you can't go wrong. Thanks so much for posting!

      Really good cookies but you cannot taste the amaretto at all. I added a splash almond extract to both the dough and the filling and then they were everything I wanted!
