  • Ready In

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line 2 cookie sheets with aluminum foil and grease the foil.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter. Stir together the oats, flour, salt and sugar; mix into the melted butter until well blended. Stir in the corn syrup, milk and vanilla. Drop batter by teaspoonfuls 3 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
  3. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven, until medium brown. Cool completely before removing from the cookie sheets. In the microwave or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, melt chocolate chips, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from heat. Spread chocolate onto the bottoms of cookies and sandwich them together.


  • Tip
  • Parchment can be used for easier cleanup/removal from the pan.

This has become one of my favorite cookie recipes. A variation I've used (and really like) is dark chocolate in place of the milk chocolate. Keep a close eye on the color while baking - they bro...

I was so very excited to find this recipe - my daughter and I bought a florentine cookie the other night to share (it had a 6" diameter!). I was telling her that I used to make them and that I w...

These were really good. I added about 1/2 cup of slivered almonds and baked for 8 minutes. I also used semi-sweet chocolate instead of milk. I recommend flattening the cookie a bit before bak...

This is very good and sugary! Using parchment paper is the best way to line the pans. I spread chocolate on top of each individual cookie instead of sandwiching the cookie. I agree though, th...

My mom requested these for her birthday this year because they are so good. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips for the spread (using milk chocolate chips in previous years have caused the respons...
