Hipcooks counts the ways, Feb 4 Recipe: Raspberry Florentines

A quickie little dessert recipe for your sweetie: Something a little fancy/ no fuss for your Valentine?  This may leave yummy leftovers for you, ha!  At Trader Joe's (and other markets) you can find lovely chocolate praline lace Florentines.  Get a package of these, some heavy cream, and some fresh raspberries.  Whip a cup of the cream with a little powdered sugar and perhaps a drop or two of something boozey.  Throw in about half of the raspberries and whisk vigorously until the cream turns a lovely pink.  Make little cookie sandwiches by dolloping the cream in between two cookies.  Serve a few on a plate with the raspberries you have left, thrown about in a pretty fashion.
