Soft and chewy cookies full of cinnamon-spice flavor glazed with vanilla frosting to make these perfect Iced Oatmeal Cookies.
I have been craving oatmeal cookies up the wazzoo lately. I’ll admit, I’m definitely a cravings-prone person. I’d say every day I probably crave between one and seventeen different things, not all edible things. For example from time to time I crave a good Disney movie marathon in my comfiest sweats. Other times I crave oatmeal cookies in various forms. Today it’s oatmeal cookies with vanilla icing.
I can’t. get. enough.
I love the texture of these particular oatmeal cookies. Very chewy. And while they are good by themselves, they’re irresistible when you dip them in that vanilla icing. After you dip them, I know you’ll want to sink your teeth in right away, but if you can hold on for a few minutes to let that icing set up I think they taste much much better. Just wait long enough for that icing to turn an opaque white and then you’re golden.
