Old-Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Cookies – perfectly crunchy cookies that everyone loves! Dressed up with a sweet glaze!
So apparently, it’s already November 6th. Which means there are 21 days left till Thanksgiving and 48 days till Christmas. How did this happen? Where is the time going?
I think I am still recovering from the time-change. It always takes me a couple of weeks to adjust to the shorter days.
If that’s not enough, the weather turned seriously chilly here in Kansas and I’ve been wearing scarves everyday. I don’t do well in cold.
Would you like to guess how fast these disappeared? Way too fast, if you ask me! These cookies have perfectly crispy edges and softer centers. The cinnamon in the dough really comes through in each bite. I actually like them a lot without the glaze, just plain. But the glaze makes for a great finishing touch.
These cookies would be great as a gift this holiday season. Everyone loves them and will happily munch on them! The old-fashioned cookies are so comforting and always heart-warming, it will make you happy to bake up a batch!
