These old-fashioned cookies are soft and chewy in the middle with crisp buttery edges, topped with creamy vanilla icing!
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this easy recipe. Let's round them up and get started!
Cream together butter and sugar, then add eggs, vanilla, molasses, cinnamon, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
Next, slowly incorporate the oats and flour. Then let cover and chill the dough in the fridge.
Use a cookie scoop to portion the dough onto a parchment-lined baking sheet.
Bake the oatmeal cookies at 350ºF for 10-12 minutes and then move them to a wire rack to cool.
Whisk together powdered sugar, water, and vanilla extract. Then lightly dip the tops of the cookies into the icing.
Place the iced cookies back onto the wire rack and allow the icing to set.
Serve with a tall glass of milk and dig in!
