These are a thin candy like cookie. The orange with the chocolate topping is amazing.

3/4 cup whipping (heavy) cream
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup slivered almonds
1/2 pound candied orange peel, very finely chopped
1/4 cup flour
2 bars (4 ounces each) sweet baking chocolate

Heat oven to 350ºF. Generously grease and flour cookie sheet.

Stir whipping cream and sugar together until well blended. Stir in almonds, orange peel and flour. Dough will be very thin.

Drop by scant teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Flatten with knife or spatula.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or just until cookies brown lightly around edges. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.

Melt chocolate bars over low heat. Turn cookies over; spread with chocolate. Allow to dry 8 hours at room temperature or until chocolate becomes firm. Store in covered container or in refrigerator.

To speed up the firming process you could stick them on the cookie sheet and put them in the refrigerator.
