Homemade HobNobs

Adapted from Sweet CS Design

1 1/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon butter or golden crisco shortening
1/2 tablespoon corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup milk or semi sweet chocolate chips, melted

1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. In a food processor combined rolled oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, brown sugar, and sugar.
2. On low speed or using pulse, add butter, corn syrup, and vanilla. Mix until dough forms. Take 1 tablespoon of dough at a time and roll into a ball. Place dough balls onto baking sheet.
3. Flatten each ball with the bottom of a glass. Bake cookies for 12 minutes until evenly golden brown. Let cookies firm up for 5 minutes on the pan before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
4. Spread some melted chocolate on the cooled cookies and use a toothpick to create the classic HobNob design. Let chocolate set then serve and enjoy!

Makes 1 1/2 dozen cookies. Best served with a cup of tea.
