Iced Oatmeal Cake Cookies-A soft cake like cookie drizzled with a sweet icing
There is nothing better than homemade cookies with a glass of cold milk to put life back in perspective.
Take my kids as an example. They can come home after school, full of excitement over something great that’s happened. Or upset over a minor infraction. Or just worn out form a long day.
No matter what it is, when there are freshly made cookies on the counter, all becomes right with the world again. They slow down, find the smile that was lost, and enjoy a cookie or 2.
We can chat for a few minutes about their day. Catch up on the latest news at school. Before they run off to the computer, the television or outside to play with friends.
So I like having cookies available for them. Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies are always a family favorite but I try to change it up. Nothing seems as special when you have it all the time.
I always love making oatmeal cookies. I pretend they’re a little healthier than other cookies. These Oatmeal cookies stay soft and are lighter on the sugar in the cookie so when you drizzle the icing over top, you don’t give your kids a sugar high.
