We told you about Julie’s Christmas tradition in yesterday’s post and how she has made hundreds (thousands?) of cookies over the years. But which one is her current favorite?
Hard to pick one out of so many, but she’s currently loving this delicious Florentine cookie sandwich. She agreed to share the recipe with us and snapped a few pics of the process while she was making them.
I was the lucky recipient of some of the cookies, and it was reeeally hard to wait to eat one until I was done shooting a pic for this post, but I did. (Well. It was my intention to eat just one, but it’s entirely possible that both cookies were gone within a minute after I shot the picture. No kidding.) They are REALLY good!
Here’s how you can make your own:
Florentine Cookie Recipe
This cookie recipe is easy to make and the result is buttery, lacy, crisp-but-not-too-much, milk-chocolate-filled deliciousness.
2/3 c. butter
2 c. quick oats
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. flour
1/4 c. light corn syrup
1/4 c. milk
1 t. vanilla
1/4 t. salt
12 oz. milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with foil.
Melt butter in saucepan on the stove. Remove from heat and stir in the oats, sugar, flour, corn syrup, milk, vanilla and salt. Thoroughly mix.
Drop small teaspoon-sized amounts onto the foil lined sheets – about 3″ or so apart.
Bake for 5-7 minutes – or until lacy and golden brown.
Cool completely before removing from the pans (Julie cools hers outside!).
Melt the chocolate chips in a bowl. Spread a thin layer of milk chocolate onto one cookie and top with another to make a sandwich.
Continue this process until all of the cookies have been made into sandwiches.
They’re so yummy! Eat and enjoy…
