Prep Time 15minutes
Cook Time 10minutes
Total Time 25minutes
2cupsOld-Fashioned Rolled Oats
1cupLight Brown Sugar
1/2cupGranulated White Sugar
2cupsPowdered Confectioner's Sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare your baking sheets with non-stick spray or parchment paper.
Using a food processor, pulse your oats just a few times. Tip: Only pulse a few times to create a variety of textures in the oats, but do NOT over-process or you'll end up with oat flour!
In a mixing bowl, combine the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together the butter and both sugars until it’s light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and mix until just combined. Slowly add in the dry mixture, mixing well until all added and combined.
Scoop the cookie dough into the size of 2 tbsp, roll into a ball and place on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cool for about 5 minutes before removing from the sheet as they will spread and flatten a little more.
Once cooled, prepare the icing by mixing the powdered sugar, vanilla, and 2 tbsp of milk. Slowly add more milk to get the desired consistency.
Take each cookie and dip it into the icing face down, do this very lightly. A light dipping will allow the icing to drip into the cracks of your cookies. Cool on a rack until the icing sets. Enjoy!
