Makes 3 dozen Sandwich Cookies
recipe by Better Homes and Gardens
2/3 cup butter
2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt
1  11.5-ounce package milk chocolate pieces (2 cups)
1)Preheat oven to 375.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper (or foil, but parchment is easier.) Set aside.
2)In a medium saucepan, melt the butter.  Stir in oats, sugar, flour, molasses, milk, vanilla, and salt.
3) Drop by rounded teaspoonfulls, 3 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets.  With floured fingertips, press down until the dough is very thin.
4)Bake in the 375 degree oven for 5 to 7 minutes or until the cookies are lacy and golden.  Cool completely, about 15 inutes.  Peel the parchment away from the cookies.
5)In a medium saucepan, melt the chocolate pieces over low heat, stirring constantly.  Spread about 1 teaspoon of the melted chocolate on the bottoms of half the cookies.  Top with the unfrosted cookies.
These are my very favorite cookies for the holidays. 
If you try them, please let me know how you liked them!
