Classic Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

These Classic Oatmeal Cookies are topped with a smooth and sweet glaze made just for these oatmeal cookies.  It’s one of my favorite cookies to make because they’re so easy and the recipe yields a large amount making them perfect for large gatherings or gift giving.

The cookies only take a few minutes to whip together and under 10 minutes to bake.  Letting them cool on a baking rack before adding the glaze prevents the icing from warming up and dripping and running off the cookies. 

You may be tempted to add the icing while they’re still a touch warm but wait until they’re completely cool.
