Hands down #1 cookie made last year!

Iced Oatmeal Cookies


2 cups old fashioned rolled oats

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tbls baking powder

1/2 tsp baking powder

2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

2 sticks butter, softened

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup sugar

2 large eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract


2 cups confectioners sugar

3 tbls milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I use wax paper on cookie sheets to place the dough onto.

Place rolled oats in food processor (me my ninja!) and pulse for a few seconds, you still want texture so just a few pulses to break them up.

Mix oats with flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.

With mixer cream butter and sugars

Add in eggs one at a time then vanilla extract

Gradually add flour mixture until combined

Roll dough into 2 tbls size balls and place on baking sheet spacing about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10 or so minutes until the bottoms begin to brown.

Cool on a baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


Mix confectioners sugar and milk together in a bowl.

Quickly dip tops of cookies into glaze and let excess drip off.

Place back on wire rack until glaze sets

Store cookies in an airtight container.


My family will eat these in half a minute if I am not in there monitoring them!
