120g sugar
5 tsp (2 packets) vanilla sugar

2.  Add cream and butter to the tm bowl and heat 3.5 mins / 90oC / speed 1

3.  Add chopped peel, sugar, vanilla sugar, cinnamon, flour and semolina into tm bowl.  Mix 10 secs / speed 3.

5.  Using 2 spoons, place small piles of mix onto a tray lined with baking paper.  Bake 180oC for about 20 mins.

Thanks Caroline - interesting with the semolina - MrsT loves these - might be the chocolate and mixed peel combo.

We love Florentines too. I usually make them with cornflakes, these look delicious.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
