Chocolate Florentines

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.
