A recipe (Florentine Lace Cookies) calls for the following ingredients:
2 cups slivered almonds
3/4 cup heavy cream
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into 4 pieces
1/2 cup (3 1/2 ounces) sugar
1/4 cup orange marmalade
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/4 teaspoon salt 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped fine
I have a few questions regarding it,
- Is it possible to substitute orange marmalade with carrot?
- And use lemon zest instead of orange?
- What if I don't use almonds at all?
