Florentine Cookies

I will admit I am not much of a baker…but my friend Aimee is! She makes homemade wheat bread daily mmmmmm… I love her bread! So this is her recipe and photos of her beautiful Florentine Cookies!

Florentine Cookies (or Lacey Chocolate cookies)
2/3 cup butter
2 cups oats (quick or old fashion are fine)
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup flour
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt

Filling: 2 cups chocolate chips
topping: optional — crushed candy canes

Preheat oven to 375.
Melt butter (on stove or in microwave).
Remove from heat and add remaining ingredients (except for chocolate and candy canes). Mix well.
Drop by level measuring teaspoonfuls, about 3 inches apart — they will spread out — on foil-lined cookie sheets.
Spread thin with rubber spatula.
Bake 5-7 minutes. They should be golden brown.
Cool. Peel foil away from cookies.

Melt chocolate chips (in double boiler on stove or in microwave — if using microwave check and stir every 15-20 seconds).
Stir chocolate until smooth.
Spread chocolate on the bottoms of half the cookies.
Top with remaining cookies.
Sprinkle cookies with crush candy cane if desired.
Makes 3 1/2 to 4 dozen sandwich cookies.

  1. those a re really fancy cookies. I am going to make your reindeer cookies this week. Do you put the M&M's and pretzels in the cookie before you bake them or after they come out. I was not sure about that part. Thanks and Happy Holidays to your family.

  2. Amy – put the m&ms and pretzels in before cooking them! Great question – happy baking day!!!
