Melt the butter, together with the sugar and flour, in a small, heavy-based saucepan over a / very low heat, and keep stirring until the mixture has melted. Gradually add the cream, stirring continuously to keep it smooth.
Place heaped spoonfuls of the mixture onto prepared baking sheet, spacing them about an inch (2.5 cm) apart (to allow the mixture room to expand while baking). Flatten each spoonful with the back of the spoon.
Place the cooled Florentines, base up, on a wire rack and, using a spoon, coat the underside of each Florentine with warm melted chocolate. Then, just before it sets, make a patterned, wavy line on each one, using a fork. Leave the Florentines to cool completely before packing.
