Recipe: Milk Chocolate Florentine Cookies
Milk Chocolate Florentine Cookies
2/3 cup butter
2 cups quick oats
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
¼ cup light or dark corn syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon salt
1 ¾ cups (11.5oz package) Nestle Toll House Milk Chocolate Morsels
1. Preheat oven to 375°. Line baking sheets with foil.
2. 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 teaspoon, about 3 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets. Spread thinly with rubber spatula.
3. Bake for 6-8 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely on baking sheets on wire racks. Peel foil from cookies.
4. Microwave morsels in medium, uncovered microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute. Stir. Morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10-15 second intervals, stirring just until the morsels are melted. Spread thin layer of melted chocolate onto flat side of one cookie, on half of the cookies. Top with remaining cookies.
Makes about 3 ½ dozen sandwich cookies.
