OLD FASHIONED ICED OATMEAL COOKIES RECIPE

INGREDIENTS
COOKIE
  1. 1 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  2. 1 cup al purpose flour and 2 tbsp
  3. 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  4. 1/4 tsp baking soda
  5. 1/4 tsp salt
  6. 1 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  7. 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  8. 8 tbsp butter softened
  9. 1/2 cup brown sugar packed
  10. 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  11. 1 egg
  12. 1 tsp vanilla extract

GLAZE
  1. 1 cup powdered sugar
  2. 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  3. 1 1/2 tbsp milk
  4. 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

INSTRUCTIONS
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or baking mats.
  • Pour oats into a food processor and pulse about 10-12 times (you want it to be an even mix of ground and whole oats). In a medium size bowl, combine the oats, flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg, whisk together.
  • In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter, sugars and vanilla extract together until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes on high speed. With mixing speed on low, add the egg and mix until incorporated. Gradually add the dry ingredients, mixing just until combined. The dough is fairly soft so I prefer refrigerating it for 20-30 minutes before rolling, that way my hands aren't a mess and it gives it time to rest.
