I post one of the most famous Italian recipe: Cantuccini.
Simona'sKitchen: Cantuccini
This is the version with almonds, but you can also substitute with chocolate or candied orange

I got to make 6 dozen cookies for a cookie walk coming up. I think I might make these. How many times do you think I would have to make this recipe to get about 5-6 dozen?

I love Florentine biscuits, I think they are very christmassy.

Hi Bolas, These biscuits are not properly 'Florentine', they're a typical recipe of my city (Prato), very close to Florence! One of the most famous producer is Biscottificio Mattei, in the historical centre of the city!
Greetings, Simona

Hi Simona, I was not referring to your biscuit, I mean the Florentine that has chopped nuts, chopped candy peel, glace cherries ect, you then cook it and when cold coat one side with dark chocolate,Ursula Ferrigno has a good recipe.
I know your region quite well, my brother had a holiday home in Tuscany and if we were at our house on Hvar we would get the Snav to Pescara and spend a week, we would take our own Olive oil, Prsut, and Lavender oil the neighbours loved it.
I love Potato Pizza
