Do you ever make something and think to yourself, “Oh my gosh this is the best thing I’ve ever eaten.”

The day I made these cookies, that’s how I felt. And the next day too. And on the third day, they were gone, and I cried.

These cookies taste very similar to the iced oatmeal cookies you get at the grocery store. I don’t even know if there is a brand name, it may just be the store brand that I enjoy so much.

But no more. No more will I buy those when I know how to make them at home. And, hellooooo, they are oatmeal. Healthy.

How to make Iced Oatmeal Cookies:

  • First, you’ll want to create a powder (or flour) with your oatmeal. You can use either a food processor or a blender, and pulse it several times. You don’t want a “fine” powder, so leaving small pieces is perfect. I pulsed mine 6 times, for 1 second each time. Set this aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, blend your butters with sugars. Add in eggs and remaining cookie ingredients. Blend until thoroughly combined.
  • Next, you’ll drop your cookie dough by large tablespoons (I use a medium sized cookie scoop), and place it onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 14-16 minutes. I like mine a little crunchier so I go closer to 16018 minutes. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack.
  • Once cooled, you can make your glaze. Whisk your powdered sugar with cream and cinnamon until smooth. Frost your cookies and allow to harden. ENJOY.

    Can I use milk instead of heavy cream for the frosting or will it not set up right?

    Most of these reviews are theoretical or memorial. I am actually MAKING these cookies right now, and they are DIVINE. Dough is yummy, bakes up beautifully (not too much spreading). Cookie is tender and tasty. Haven’t cooled enough to ice yet, but they can only get better and better. Highly recommend you stop thinking about these and BAKE THEM NOW!
