Chewy Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Chewy iced oatmeal cookies are comforting and nostalgic! These cookies are a must bake when you crave old-fashioned oatmeal cookies dipped in vanilla icing.

Pulse oats: Place rolled oats in a food processor and pulse for about 20 seconds to reach a coarse consistency.

Step 1

Make dough: Whisk together coarsely ground oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, cornstarch, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg in a bowl.

Step 2

Beat room temperature butter, dark brown sugar, and granulated sugar together until creamy, about 2 minutes.

Step 3

Beat in eggs one at a time.

Step 4

Add vanilla, and beat to combine.

Step 5

Gradually add dry ingredients, beating just until combined.

Step 6

Expect a thick cookie dough (scrape down the bowl as needed with a spatula).

Step 7

Use a medium cookie scoop to scoop 1 1/2-inch balls of dough and place two inches apart on baking sheets.

Step 8

Bake cookies for 12 to 13 minutes, rotating halfway through. Cool cookies for 5 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool.

Step 9

Make icing: Whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla, and heavy cream until smooth and ribbony.

Step 10

Lightly dip the tops of each cookie in vanilla icing and place dipped cookies in a single layer on a wire rack to set.
