Iced Oatmeal Cookies {Recipe}
Serves: 3 dozen
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. baking soda
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground nutmeg
  • ¾ cup oil
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 Tbs. water
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Measure out the rolled oats and then pulse them in a food processor for about 10 seconds until they are coarsely ground.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the oats with flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. In the bowl of an electric stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, mix the oil with the sugars until combined.
  5. Add in eggs one at a time and then vanilla extract.
  6. With the mixer running on low, add in flour mixture until combined.
  7. Scoop dough (I like to use the OXO brand medium cookie scoop) into 2 Tbs. sized balls and bake for 10-12 minutes until the bottoms begin to brown.
  8. Cool completely before adding the icing.
  9. In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar with the water. You may want to add the water a little at a time to make sure it doesn't become too thin. The key to icing these cookies is to dip the cookies straight down into the icing and then lift the cookie straight up. That should create the cool store bought effect.
