for 8 servings
2 cups old fashioned rolled oat, pulsed in food processor x10
2 cups flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature and softened
½ cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ cup raisin
2 cups powdered sugar
1 ½ tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon warm water
- Preheat oven to 350˚F (180˚C)
- Pulse oats in a food processor or blender 10 times.
- Add pulsed oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg into a bowl.
- In a large bowl, beat softened butter with a hand mixer until creamy, add brown and white sugars, then beat until fluffy. Next beat in vanilla and eggs 1 at a time.
- Pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients ⅓ at a time until it’s gone and dough forms.
- Fold in raisins or chocolate chunks.
- Take 1 tablespoon of dough and roll it into a ball. Then flatten into a cookie shape and put on a well-greased parchment-lined baking sheet.
- Bake 12-15 minutes. (Top rack = no brown bottoms, bottom rack = browned bottoms and a little more crispy).
- Cool completely and make the icing in the meantime. Combine powdered sugar, milk, and warm water in a shallow bowl. Once the cookies have cooled, dip into the icing or dab icing on with a pastry brush. Dry for 10 minutes or until icing has hardened.
