Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies Details

You know how Grandma’s are the best bakers? Somehow everything they make just tastes better even if you followed the same recipe and instructions? This recipe is so easy to follow it’ll taste like years of wisdom in the kitchen to everyone who has the pleasure of enjoying them.

If you’ve let your dough chill longer than the recommended hour, you can either allow it to sit out for about 15 minutes before scooping and rolling, or you can scoop and roll right away but be sure to very gently press your palm on the ball of dough to slightly flatten the top. This will help the cookies spread nicely.

  • 2 cups old fashioned rolled oats

  • 2 cups all purpose flour

  • 1 tsp. baking soda

  • 1/4 tsp. salt

  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1 cup light brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 eggs room temperature

  • 1 1/2 Tbsp. molasses

  • 2 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract

  • Icing Ingredients
  • 1 3/4 cups confectioner’s sugar

  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 1/5 – 2 Tbsp. milk


  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper then set aside.
  • Place the oats into a food processor, then pulse for about 30 seconds to create different size pieces of oats.
  • Whisk the oats in a medium sized bowl with the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  • In a separate, medium sized bowl, beat the butter and sugars together on low speed for about 2 minutes or until the mixture is light and creamy.
  • Add the eggs in one at a time mixing between each addition. Add in the vanilla.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix just until a nice, soft dough forms.
  • Cover the dough in a sealed container or plastic wrap, then let chill in the fridge for at least one hour.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and scoop the cookies to about 2 Tbsp. sized balls. Very slightly press the palm of your hand into the cookie dough balls to flatten them just a little bit.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown on the edges.
  • Allow the cookies to cool completely.
  • Making The Icing
  • Whisk together the confectioner’s sugar, vanilla, and milk. Add the milk 1 Tbsp. at a time until the icing reaches a thick consistency but forms slow ribbons when the whisk or fork is pulled up over the bowl.
  • Once the cookies have cooled completely, dip the top side of each cookie in the icing.
  • Allow the excess icing to drip back into the bowl. You can scrape a bit of icing off using the side of your bowl if you wish too.
  • Let the cookies set. The icing will harden in about 1 hour. Enjoy!
