How To Make Homemade Iced Oatmeal Cookies:
Preheat oven to 350F.
Use the recipe provided to make the cookie dough. I find it best to use a stand mixer for this recipe as it is a thick dough.
Take about 1 tablespoon of dough per cookie, roll dough into ball and place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. A cookie scoop would be great for portioning these out.
Bake cookies for 10 minutes. You want to take them out at 10 minutes. They’ll look a bit puffy and underdone but thats ok.
They will flatten when they cool. I like to let them cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes and then move them to a wire rack.
Remove and let cool on cooling rack.
As you complete the baking process, you’ll find yourself eagerly anticipating the final touch – the irresistible icing that will elevate these cookies to another level of deliciousness. But before we dive into that sweet endeavor, let’s allow the cookies to cool completely!
Now it’s time to add the icing!
Slowly whisk the powdered sugar and milk together, allowing the powdered sugar to dissolve and create a smooth consistency. The milk helps to thin out the icing, making it easier to spread onto the cookies. If you prefer a thicker icing, you can decrease the amount of milk or add more powdered sugar until you achieve your desired texture.
Dip the top of each cookie into the icing.
Once all the cookies have been dipped, let them sit for a while, allowing the icing to set. This will ensure that the icing doesn’t smear or melt when storing or serving the cookies. As the icing dries, it will develop a slightly firm outer layer, while the inside remains delightfully soft and creamy.
Do I Have to Pulse The Oats In A Food Processor?
I’ve seen a lot of Oatmeal cookie recipes that require you to pulse the oats in a food processor or blender before adding them to your flour but I just don’t think that is necessary. I like the texture the oats give to the cookies.
Also, I haven’t tested this recipe with oat flour so I don’t know how that would work out in this particular recipe.
Do I Have To Use Old Fashioned Oats?
Old-fashioned rolled oats are the key to giving these cookies their signature texture. Instant oats or steel-cut oats won’t deliver the same chewy and slightly coarse consistency that defines a truly authentic iced oatmeal cookie. So make sure you have a box of old-fashioned rolled oats on hand before you start baking.
There Aren’t Any Spices Added! Can I add some?
You sure can! If you want to add more flavor to these cookies you could add a teaspoon or so of cinnamon or nutmeg to the cookie dough. Warm spices like that would be great in this cookie dough.
