Directions:
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with foil or parchment paper. Melt the butter in a saucepan and remove from heat. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup and level off. Stir flour, oats, sugar, salt, molasses, milk and vanilla into melted butter and mix well. Drop by level teaspoonfuls about 3 inches apart onto prepared pans; spread thin with rubber spatula.
Bake at 375 for 5 to 7 minutes, until lacy and golden. Cool completely (at least 15 minutes) and peel foil off cookies or remove from parchment.
Melt chocolate morsels in sauce pan over very low heat, stirring constantly. Spread thin layer of melted chocolate on the flat side of half of the cookies. Top with remaining cookies.
