Old fashioned iced oatmeal cookies are the perfect after-school treat with a glass of milk. Use our iced oatmeal cookie recipe to create crispy and chewy cookies that are dipped in a creamy vanilla icing.
Beat in water and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Fold in oats.
Drop dough onto greased baking sheets using a medium cookie scoop.
Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Allow cookies to stand 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.
While the cookies are cooking, make a batch of glaze. Stir cream and powdered sugar together. Add water, 1 tsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached.
Quickly dip the top of each cookie in the glaze.
Allow excess to drip off.
Generic brands of shortening work best.
