How To Make Crunbl Iced Oatmeal Cookies
Prepare for baking: Preheat oven to 350℉. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
Mix wet ingredients: Cream together butter and sugar using a stand mixer. Add in eggs and vanilla extract.
Add dry ingredients: To the butter, sugar, and egg mixture, add salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix until well combined. Slowly rotate, adding rolled oats and flour. Mix until all the ingredients are incorporated.
Assemble and bake: Place the cookies on the baking sheet using a 2½ inch cookie scoop. Leave about 2 inches between each cookie. Bake for 10-12 mins until the cookies turn slightly golden brown around the edges. NOTE: If you prefer a flatter cookie, gently flatten each cookie slightly using a spatula. Allow cookies to cool completely.
Make the icing: Mix powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and milk in a small bowl. Using a spoon, drizzle the icing over each cookie. Serve and Enjoy!
- When creaming together the butter and sugars, beat them until light and fluffy, as this will help to aerate the dough and create a tender texture in the finished cookies.
- Use a cookie scoop to portion out the dough onto the baking sheets to ensure they all come out in a uniform size.
- If you prefer your cookies to be slightly flatter, gently press down on the dough with the back of a spoon or a spatula before baking.
- Allow the cookies to cool completely on the baking sheets before removing them, as this will help them to set and prevent them from falling apart.
- When making the icing, start with a small amount of milk and gradually add more as needed to achieve your desired consistency. You can always add more milk, but you can't take it away, so go slow!
- For a chocolatey twist on this classic recipe, add in in 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips to the cookie dough before baking.
- Make these cookies even more festive and flavorful by swapping out the cinnamon and nutmeg for pumpkin pie spice or apple pie spice, which will add a cozy fall-inspired touch.
- Add in ½ cup of chopped pecans or walnuts to the cookie dough before baking. The nuts will add a delicious crunch and nuttiness to the cookies.
- Add ½ cup of rainbow sprinkles to the cookie dough before baking. The sprinkles will add a cheerful pop of color and a sweet crunch to each cookie that's perfect for a birthday celebration.
Storing & Freezing
Storing: Once cooled, store iced oatmeal cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
Freezing: Place the oatmeal cookies in an airtight container or freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to enjoy, thaw the cookies at room temperature for a few hours or in the refrigerator overnight.
Yes, be sure to use gluten-free oats and a gluten-free all-purpose flour blend, and check the labels of all other ingredients for wheat-containing ingredients.
Yes, however, this will make the texture of the cookies may be a bit more crumbly. If using old-fashioned oats, pulse them in a food processor for about 10-15 seconds before adding to the dough. This will help break down the oats a bit and make them more uniform in size.
