Almond Florentines filled with Gingerbread Cookie Butter

I love to make almond florentines and sandwich two cookies together with Nutella! But I saw this unusual “cookie butter” at Trader Joe’s and thought I’d try it with this cookie. It has the consistency of smooth peanut butter, a little firmer, and the taste of gingerbread. It’s really delicious! In this cookie, I think the filling was masked by the flavor of the florentine alone. But between two sugar cookies it would have been perfect. For this cookie, I think I’ll stick with Nutella or a homemade buttercream! The cookie recipe is in my cookbook 🙂
