Lottie's Quarantine Florentines
Great British Baking Show ™ - Judging

Lottie: "I am making quarantine Florentines for my grandparents because it is their favourite biscuit." 

Her grandparents' favourite florentines are a classic combination of chopped nuts, ginger and sour cherries. 

Prue Leith: "Well, I have to say, I think they look rather good."

Paul Hollywood: "I think you've got a good tempered chocolate on there. And I do like the classic Florentine. You got a nice shine. It's busy. And that's what a Florentine should look like. A bit of a snap. It's chocolatey, it's nutty."

Prue Leith: "Love the sour cherry. It's delicious. The ginger and the cherry with the dark chocolate is the fantastic." 

Paul Hollywood: "And it does snap. It's nice and thin. I can't find a fault with them, really."

About The Great British Baking Show ™

The Great British Bake Off ™ (often abbreviated to Bake Off or GBBO and referred to in the United States as The Great British Baking Show ™) is a streamed British baking competition, in which a group of amateur bakers compete against each other in a series of rounds, hoping to impress the judges with their baking skills. One contestant in The Great British Baking Show ™ is eliminated in each round, and the winner is selected from the three contestants who reach the final.

The Great British Baking Show ™ operates on a weekly elimination process to find the best all-around baker from the contestants, who are all amateurs. In each episode, the bakers are given three challenges based on that week's theme: a signature bake, a technical challenge, and a show-stopper. The bakes are assessed by the judges who then choose a "Star Baker" for the week, and a contestant is also eliminated. In the final round, three bakers are left and a winner is chosen from the three.
