Do you ever have a bad baking day?  I had one of those the other day. It was Bad. But with a happy ending.

We (my youngest and I) have been baking cookies every week for her to sell to raise money for her Washington DC Trip. School started back last week, so I’m doing the baking while she’s at school.  We usually bake a standby, we know it’s awesome, and her customers love it, cookie. Some of the popular cookies are Dark Chocolate Tiger Cookies, Lemon Sugar Cookies, Cake Mix Cookies and Chocolate Chip-Pecan Cookies. The ladies at the bank have become my personal taste testers. If a cookie makes it past them, I know it’s good. And because they know they’re taste testers, they give me honest opinions. I love these ladies.

I decided since I had the kitchen to myself, I’d just make 2 new cookie recipes. Big mistake. I’ll claim user error, possibly, on one, but the other one was just terrible. I was so frustrated. It’s not like I could just say never mind. These ladies expect cookies. I did have a 3rd recipe I wanted to try out so  I took a deep breath, pulled up my big girl panties and made them.

I can’t tell you how glad I am that I went ahead with the 3rd recipe! Not only did everyone in my house love them, my oldest daughter begged me not to sell them! They were loved by the bank ladies. I found the recipe over at Shugary Sweets. I pinned it way back when she first posted it. Just another reason I love Pinterest. I can go find recipes I know I want to make when I’m finally ready to make them.

I knew these cookies would be good. Aimee of Shugary Sweets makes things like Peanut Butter Fudge, Chocolate Mocha Cookies, Dark Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosted Cupcakes and even a Chocolate Cake Shake! All of these are on my baking bucket list! I only adjusted the glaze from the original recipe.

Maple Glazed Oatmeal Cookies

Maple Glazed Oatmeal Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 2 cups quick cooking oats
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • for the glaze
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon maple extract


  1. In a food processor or a chopper, give your oats a light chop. Just enough to make the pieces smaller but not too fine. Set aside.
  2. In your mixing bowl, combine sugars then mix in melted butter. Add eggs, one at a time, make sure to scrape down sides of bowl. Add in flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix till well combined.
  3. Drop by spoonfuls (I use a medium cookie scoop) onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 13-15 minutes. My cookies were done at 14 minutes. Let cool for a few minutes before removing to racks to cool completely.
  4. Combine powdered sugar, cream and maple extract to make a glaze. Brush or drizzle over cookies. Let glaze dry at room temperature before storing. It took my glaze about 6 hours to completely set so I could stack my cookies.

  9. Nicole {WonkyWonderful} says:

    Oh, these cookies look so good! I want one … or twelve of them 🙂

  10. I am so excited to see this and I plan to try it soon. Question our youngest will be going on the DC trip next year. Who do you sell them too? Family, friends, teacher, or do you set something up somewhere. I never thought of doing this and it would be a good way to make the money for it.

    • We actually sell them in businesses. Our bank, the city hall, where we get our car repaired, the local pharmacy, Places where we shop. We don’t go to restaurants or places that sell food. We don’t do door to door for homes, too hit or miss on getting them sold. Since school has started back, we go on Thursdays, right after school. Muffins are also a great seller for us. Good luck!

    • Thank you for the information. I am going to give it a try. It will really help because it is quite expensive for them to go, but do not want her to miss out on it.

  33. Judy Kaiser says:

    Help!!! 🙂 I really want to make these maple glazed oatmeal cookies BUT, when I went to the store to get the maple extract they did not have any. Is there a reasonable substitution I can make? Thanks!!!! Mama J

  34. Well the recipe seems easy, but I think that the last time I tasted a recipe with nutmeg in it was horrible! The taste of it overpowered everything and it was oh-so-bad! ewwww….so can I reduce the amount of nutmeg to the small minumim? Well that reduce the flavor or anything? 🙂

    • Alexia, if nutmeg’s not your thing definitely reduce it or omit it. The real flavor of these cookies is the cinnamon, the nutmeg just balances it a little and of course the icing. The icing makes these cookies amazing!

      • Thank you.

        I did them this evening. The cookie is good, but I think with the glazed they come out too sweet. I hope the people I am selling this to will like them. I am worried, so wish me luck! I did not however, had any maple extract so I just did a simple vanilla glazed. 🙁

  35. As a Canadian, I especially love the idea of adding a maple glaze to oatmeal cookies. What a nice, comforting winter treat!

  36. These would be a superb cookie (IMHO) with a couple of tweaks. First, I thought they were a bit salty, so I would probably cut down on the salt by a 1/4 or 1/2. And then I would cut the glaze recipe in 1/2, because it made way too much. I had a lot left over, and I’m not sure what I’ll do with, as I hate to throw it out. I made the glaze with half and half because that is what I had on hand. It was way too runny, and I think if I would have used heavy cream as called for, it would have been thicker. The glaze was so runny that it almost soaked into the cookies instead of setting up nicely like it should have.
