Iced Oatmeal Cookies

My day was CRAZED... how about yours?
Best part of my day?
Carrying around a platter of cookies to my busy morning of meetings and sharing these cookies. It's amazing how happy a little ole cookie will make people.
Spread some love, bake these.

I found this recipe off of a very, very cute blog called Mother Thyme
This is her recipe, and I wholeheartedly approve.  I do have to say though, her cookies look way nicer than mine!

Makes about 24-30
    2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 tablespoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
    1 cup light brown sugar
    1/2 cup sugar
    2 large eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    2 cups confectioners sugar
    3 tablespoons milk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheets with cooking spray and set aside.
Place rolled oats in a food processor and pulse for about 10 seconds until coarse.

Mix oats with flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Using an electric mixer cream butter and sugars.
Add in eggs one at a time then vanilla extract.
Gradually add in flour mixture until combined.

Roll dough into 2 tablespoon size balls and place on baking sheet spacing about 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes until the bottoms begin to brown.Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Mix confectioners sugar and milk together in a medium bowl.
    Quickly dip tops of cookies into glaze and let excess drip off.
OR, drizzle the glaze over the top in little squiggles.
    Place back on wire rack until glaze sets.
    Store cookies in an airtight container.
