Recipe by MacChef
READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 30 cookies


  • 1
    cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1
    cup sugar
  • 12
    cup salted butter, melted
  • 1
    large egg, beaten
  • 1 12
    teaspoons vanilla
  • 2
    teaspoons orange juice
  • 3
    tablespoons flour
  • 12
    teaspoon salt
  • 6
    ounces semisweet chocolate


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees with rack in middle of the oven.
  • In a medium bowl, mix oats, sugar and melted butter together with a wooden spoon. Stir in egg until well blended, then add vanilla and orange juice. Add flour and salt and stir to mix. Batter will be somewhat thick.
  • On a lined baking sheet, drop batter by half-teaspoonfuls at least 2 inches apart and up to 12 cookies per sheet pan. Bake until golden brown, 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on these, they will go from golden brown to burnt very quickly.
  • Cool cookies on baking sheet just until they hold their shape, about 2 minutes. Dont let completely cool or they will be difficult to remove. With a thin spatula, transfer them to a cool rack and let cool completely.
  • Melt chocolate in a microwave safe bowl for 30 seconds at a time stirring until melted. Spread a thin layer of chocolate on a cookie and top with another cookie. Let chocolate harden about 2 hours before storing.
