> 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
> 2 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
> 2 1/4 cups old-fashioned oats
> 3 tbsp all-purpose flour
> 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
> 1/4 tsp ground allspice
> 1/8 tsp ground ginger
> 1 tsp salt
> 1 large egg, beaten
> 1 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 375°F. Line 2 large cookie sheets with parchment.
In a medium saucepan, combine the butter and brown sugar. Heat on medium and cook until butter is melted, stirring often. Remove from heat. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, flour, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, salt, egg, and vanilla. Add mixture to the melted butter and stir until combined.
By tablespoon, in batches, drop the mixture onto prepared pans, spacing 2 inches apart. Bake 5–8 min., until golden brown. Cool cookie sheets on wire racks 5 min. Using parchment, transfer cookies onto wire rack to remove from pans. Cool completely on wire rack. To store, keep in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 1 week.


Once cookies are completely cool, sandwich a thin layer of melted chocolate or dulce de leche in between them.

When adding the batter to your cookie sheet, make sure to leave a full 2 inches between the edges of each mound to allow cookies to spread. If your cookies spread so much that the edges touch once baked, simply use the edge of a butter knife or thin spatula to separate them once they are out of the oven but before they have cooled and hardened."
