I spotted these lovers the other day and knew even with 100 degree weather, I wouldn't mind heating the kitchen up to make them.
They didn't disappoint, we LOVED them.
It's miserably hot in the house, but we have Cookies!
Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cups sugar
3/4 cups brown sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
3 TB milk
Put oats in food processor and pulse until partially ground, 10 seconds or so.
In large mixing bowl combine, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and oats. Whisk until well combined.
In mixing bowl, with paddle attachments, add softened butter, sugar and brown sugar. Mix until well combined and fluffy, gradually add eggs and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
Gradually add flour mixture, mix until combined. Let dough rest for about 10 minutes.
Drop by 2 TB. or use large cookie scoop on parchment paper or baking stone.
Bake 350 degrees for 11-14 minutes, or until edges just begin to brown. Leave cookies on stone for a few minutes until they are ready to transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
For icing: In small bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk. Whisk until creamy. What worked best for me was to spoon the icing on top of the cookies and then just smooth around in the center. Cool on wire rack.
Store in airtight container.
