Iced Oatmeal Cookies

I am in a baking mood. I think it is the cold temperatures and the thought of Christmas being right around the corner.  I am hoping to spend all weekend in the kitchen.

These cookies were super easy and oh so delicious. They were to appease Mr. J when he was begging me to get him Little Debbie oatmeal pies.  Those packages cookies gross me out. They always have, even when I was a kid.  I cannot bring myself to buy them.

I ate a whole bunch with no glaze.  Mr. J liked the glaze. I will be making these again. Soon.  With thoughts of peanut butter frosting sandwiched in between two cookies.  

Cheers to a weekend of baking!

  2. I'm also in a baking mood. The holidays always kick my backside into the kitchen and to the oven. I made blue cornbread last night.

  3. I am feeling the baking itch too! These cookies look so good. Remind me of the iced oatmeal cookies I used to eat as a child. Thank you for sharing!
