Makes about 36

2/3 cup butter
2 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 (11.5 ounce) package of milk chocolate morsels

Preheat oven to 375F. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over low heat. Remove from heat. Stir in oats, sugar, flour, corn syrup, milk, vanilla extract and salt; mix well. Drop by teaspoonfuls, about 3" apart, onto foil-lined cookie sheets. Spread into thin circles with a rubber spatula. Bake 5-7 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie sheets. Peel foil away from cookies. In the top of a double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, melt chocolate morsels; stir until smooth. Spread chocolate on flat side of half of the cookies. Top with remaining cookies while chocolate is still warm. Allow chocolate to cool and harden before serving. Makes 3-4 dozen sandwiched cookies.

Would make this again.
These are amazing! They are deceptively simple to make, and utterly delicious. I've made many a Christmas cookie in my day and these have got to be one of the top recipes of all time. They're a chocolate lover's DREAM, and my kids clamored for more. They certainly deserve more attention than they're getting! 5 stars

A very good recipe, the same as you would buy from a bakery. Very easy to make I'll be making this one again. 4 stars
