I had never tried or heard of these cookies until we were at a little brewery in Michigan. We had stopped to try their beer and they had these cookies on the counter. They were sooooo good! They are caramelized, crispy, sandwich cookies with chocolate in the middle.
For all you beer people out here these are AMAZING with an IPA or Pale Ale. You would never think to put the two together but you need to try it!!
A few tips on making these:
I made them with semi sweet chocolate chips, but next time I will definitely use dark chocolate chips.
I was not fast enough and the cookies were starting to cool before I could add the chocolate chips to them. I ended up microwaving the cookies with the chips in them for about 8 seconds to melt them and then I squeezed them together.
- 1 cup soft butter
- 2¼ cups light brown sugar
- 2¼ cups rolled oats
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees, line baking sheets with parchment paper
- Heat butter and brown sugar in saucepan over medium heat, stir until butter has melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat and let sit for 2 mins. Stir in oats, flour, salt, egg and vanilla.
- Drop about a tablespoon of batter onto cookie sheets leaving at least 2-3 inches in between cookies. Bake for 5-7 mins, just until the edges of the cookies start to caramelize. Allow the cookies to cool for a few mins. then flip one over, add a hand full of chocolate chips and then put another cookie on top of the chips. Let it sit for a few mins then press down when the chips are melted.
