Today Ashley from Prairie Gal Cookin’ is joining us with her recipe Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies for cookie Monday. Ashley, we are so excited to have you; and even more excited to dive into this cookie recipe.
As Prudy always said, take it away my friend:
Before I can share this yuummy recipe with all of you, I just wanted to thank Emily for letting me be a part of her Cookie Mondays! It’s so much fun to meet new bloggers and stumble across fun recipes – Which is exactly whatis happening here on Cookie Mondays!
When Emily asked me if I would be a part of CM, I had one recipe pop into my head – These Old-Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies. They are a breeze to make and the simple little icing you whip together to dip them in just pulls the whole cookie together and throws it over the top!
My favorite part about these cookies is that they aren’t your normal oatmeal cookie – These are “dipped-icing” cookies, and full of flavor thanks to the cinnamon and nutmeg in them. They won’t last long in any household! (So it might be necessary to stash several away for yourself after you make them!)
2 cups quick cooking oats (or old-fashioned)
2 cups flour
1 T. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. ground nutmeg
1 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, room temperature (or run under hot water for 30 seconds)
1 t. vanilla
2 cups powdered sugar
3-5 T. milk
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line cookie sheets with waxed paper.
2. Start by pulsing the oats in a food processor several times.
3. In a large bowl, combine the pulsed oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
4. In the bowl of a stand-mixer, beat the butter on high 30 seconds.
5. Add the sugars and beat until fluffy.6. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating until yolk just barely disappears into batter.
7. Adding 1/3 of the flour at a time to the batter, mix well.
8. Drop the balls of cookie dough onto the lined cookie sheets and bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until bottoms are just starting to brown.
9. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 – 3 minutes and then finish cooling on a cookie rack.
10. When cookies are cooled, mix together the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla for icing.
11. Dip the cookies into the icing (face down). Let the icing set-up and then dip them all again.
12. Let icing set-up again and store in an air-tight container.
