Iced Oatmeal Cookies

iced oatmeal cookiesThis has been a crazy week. Who am I kidding? A crazy month. The end is in sight, so things around here will be back to normal very soon. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

This week, I am sharing an iced oatmeal cookie from The Novice Chef that are just like the cookies that I used to eat as a kid. You know the ones – in the red package. Soft and chewy, spicy and sweet. Since it is still fall, I thought that these were a perfect addition to the lineup. I love these cookies, and cannot tell you how these cookies brought me back to my childhood. The recipe calls for old fashioned oats that are pulsed in the food processor until coarsely ground. I am lazy and just kept the oats whole, but you could use a quick cooking oat if you wanted to.

    Really enjoying your launch of the 12 weeks of cookies – such fun! I have been dreaming of oatmeal cookies, and since the sugar ban, and thinking of sending to my nephew in college. That way I only have to sample one, to make sure they taste good!
