Baking My Way: Chocolate-glazed Florentines

I don't know how I got it wrong but this recipe didn't work for me. It seems to be very temperamental and I just ended up with messes and blobs that were supposed to be cookies. After they cooled a little I formed them into cookie like ball and glazed over. Not really what it's supposed to be like but salvaged none the less! 

1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup finely chopped candy pine
1/3 cup chopped candied cherries
1/3 cup silvered almonds

4 oz chocolate
1 teaspoon shortening

Heat oven to 325.

Grease and flour cookie sheet.

Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; remove from heat.

Stir in honey, sugar and milk; stir in flour.

Cook over medium heat for 3 to 6 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly.

Remove from heat; stir n candied peel, cherries and almonds.

Drop mixture by teaspoonfuls 3 inches apart on cookie sheet.

Bake for 8 to 13 minutes or until edges are golden.

Cool 1 minute; carefully remove from cookie sheet. Cool for 15 minutes or until completely cool.

Melt all glaze ingredient in a small sauce pan until blended. Spread over bottom side of cookies. When wet but not set use a fork to make waves in the glaze. Let cookies set.
