Iced Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Vanilla-iced oatmeal cookies are soft and chewy with cozy spices.  I love that these frosted oatmeal cookies are quick to make and don't need refrigeration. 

Oatmeal Cookie – 2 cups (172 g) old fashioned or rolled oat – 2 cups (240 g) all purpose flour – 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon – ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg – ¾ teaspoon baking soda – ½ teaspoon salt – 1 cup (226 g) unsalted butter melted and cooled – 1 cup (200 g) light brown sugar – ½ cup (100 g) granulated sugar – 1 large egg (US), room temperature – 1 large egg yolk (US), room temperature – 2 tablespoons (30 ml) molasse – 2 teaspoons (10 ml) vanilla extract Icing for Oatmeal Cookie – 2 cups (240 g) powdered sugar – 3 - 4 tablespoons (45 - 60 ml) milk or water

Mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients slowly until just mixed. I recommend doing this with ¼ of the dry ingredients.

Dip each cookie's top with frosting. Shake the biscuit gently to remove excess frosting. Return the iced biscuit to the cooling rack to set and enjoy!

Keep frosted oatmeal cookies airtight. Stay at room temperature 5 days.  Refrigerate cookies for 5 days. For extended preservation, freeze iced oatmeal cookies.
