Oatmeal Chocolate Florentine Cookies

Posted by Lori:

Looking through a Christmas cookie cookbook, I came across this recipe.  They are delicious and very pretty, too. I think these are a perfect Christmas cookie for giving and sharing!

Oatmeal Chocolate Florentine Cookies

2/3 cup butter or margarine (I used real butter.)
2 cups quick oats, uncooked
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups (12 ounce package) milk chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat.  Remove from heat.  Stir in remaining ingredients, excepts for chocolate chips.  Mix well.  Drop by measuring teaspoonfuls (Mine are a little bigger.) about 3 inches apart, onto foil-lined cookie sheets. Important step that I didn't notice at first: Spread thin with rubber spatula.

Bake 5 - 7 minutes until golden brown around edges.  (Mine took longer, as most things do in my old oven!)  Cool on cookie sheets.  Peel foil away from cookies.  (I had to put new foil every time, except for the very last batch that cooked a little longer.)

Melt milk chocolate chips over hot water (My stove top has a "melt" setting and it worked great!).  Stir chips until smooth.  Spread chocolate on flat side of half of the cookies.  Top with remaining cookies to form sandwiches.
