Chocolate Florentine Cookies

I loved these!
What do you call them? Lacey Cookies? Something different?
I had never seen them before I found this recipe, but I think I may be alone in my ignorance.
Since I found the recipe, I’ve noticed them all over the place!
My favorite thing about these cookies?
If you can wait to eat them until the next day, the chocolate inside is hard, but the oatmeal on the outside is still just a little chewy. YUM!
