Iced Spiced Oatmeal Cookies

Skinny little cookies can be so pathetic looking.  Don’t ya think? So, I decided to fatten things up a bit.  I made these cookies without nuts or raisins, but there is certainly room for both in this chunky little creation.

Iced Spiced Oatmeal Cookies

1/2 c. margarine

1/2 c. granulated sugar

1/2 c. brown sugar

2 eggs

2 tbsp. milk

1 tsp. vanilla extract

3/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

2 c. all-purpose flour

1 1/2 c. oatmeal

Makes about 3 dozen.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl, mix margarine, sugars, eggs, milk, and vanilla; mix thoroughly.  Stir in salt, baking soda, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice.  Add flour and mix completely.  Add oatmeal until all ingredients are blended.

Drop by teaspoonful onto prepared cookie sheets.  Bake for 6-7 minutes until light golden brown.  Cool slightly on cookie sheets before moving to cooling rack.

For the glaze I mixed up some powdered sugar, a dash of pumpkin pie spice,  a little vanilla extract, and a drop or two of milk.  The glaze should be thin enough to drizzle over top of cooled cookies.

Later this week; another Pink Paradise -vintage camper  update.  2 steps forward and 3 steps back…

  1. These look wonderful! I love that we’re getting closer to fall and it’s time to start playing with the pumpkin pie spice (though I’ve been known to use it throughout the year).
