Milk Chocolate Florentine Cookies

I pulled out the cookie cookbook I got last year for Christmas and bookmarked a few to try. I'm not sure how many I will get to, but here is the first experiment - Milk Chocolate Florentine Cookies. These are thin and crispy cookies that are sandwiched together with melted chocolate.

2/3 cup butter
2 cups quick-cooking oats
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup light or dark corn syrup
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup chocolate chips

MELT butter in medium saucepan; remove from heat. Stir in oats, sugar, flour, corn syrup, milk, vanilla extract and salt; mix well. Drop by level teaspoons, about 3 inches apart, onto foil-lined baking sheets. Spread thinly with rubber spatula.

BAKE in preheated 375° F. oven for 6 to 8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on baking sheets on wire racks. Peel foil from cookies.

MICROWAVE morsels in medium, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Spread thin layer of melted chocolate onto flat side of half the cookies. Top with remaining cookies to make sandwiches.

They were really good - especially with a big cup of coffee.

Those are beautifull....
I tried to make those many years ago and my cookie sheet actually softened and bent, I di believe it was a faulty cookie sheet but the mess was so bad in the oven I've never tried again.....
