My kids always come home from school absolutely starving! They like to eat and I like to bake, it’s a match made in heaven. School is back in session and with all four of them coming home hungry I thought I’d make up a big batch of iced oatmeal cookies for them to enjoy while we recount the events of the day. We use our favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and dip them in a simple glaze. These cookies are easy to make and are very versatile! We use the un-iced ones for ice cream sandwiches too, YUM.
