It’s one of those days you wake up early and you look around…you just want to do something. Anything. I decided that I would make something for dessert tonight for the boys. I made them these cookies. My husband loves them. It’s one of his favorites. I’ve bought them from the store premade in the cookie aisle and he now says that they don’t taste the same. The icing has to dry on these cookies. You have to give them that time to do so. If not they just get too moist and stick together. Honestly, it’s just a big mess. I encourage you to try this recipe. It’s good! They never last too long here!

2 cups old fashioned oats

2 cups all purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon nutmeg

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup melted butter

1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

Icing

2 cups powdered sugar

5 tablespoons milk

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Food process oats with flour. Add to a large bowl. Add baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside. In a bowl add butter, and both sugars. Stir in flour mixture. Use a small cookie scoop and place 1.5 inches from each other. Bake for 14-16 minutes on a greased pan. Just until edges are browned. Remove from oven and put on a cooling rack. Do not allow to cool in pan, or else it will stick. Once completely cool, mix the powdered sugar and milk together. Dip the cookies top side in the icing. Allow to completely dry before storing for up to one week, if they last that long ;).
