Cinnamon Dreams

It’s no secret that Christmas is my favorite time of the year. Not because of presents but because of cookies! I bake the staple cookies every year (peanut butter balls, cut outs, etc.) but I always try new recipes to share with those that I love. I have always been a fan of oatmeal cookies, but I think these, Santa will just adore!

Cinnamon Oatmeal Iced Cookies

Makes 2 1/2 dozen

  • 2 cups Old fashion oats (pulsed in food processor)
  • 2 cups AP flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Ground nutmeg
  • 2 sticks Butter(softened)
  • 1 cup Light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup White sugar
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp Almond extract

White Glaze

  • 2 cups Confectionary Sugar
  • 3 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tsp Almond Extract

First, place the oats in a food processor or a chopper. Pulse about 6 times to cut the oats slightly. The more powdery the oats get, the thinner the cookies will be. I prefer them to be thicker so it depends on your tastes. After the oats are pulsed, place to the side.


Next, mix the butter, sugars, eggs, vanilla, and almond extract together in a mixer until smooth. Scrape the sides and then add the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices, and oats. Mix until completely combined. Place in the refrigerator to cool for 1 hour. You can use the dough immediately but it’s very sticky.


After the dough has chilled, remove from refrigerator. Heat oven to 350°. Make dough balls about 1 inch in diameter and place on a pan covered in parchment paper. Bake for 11-13 minutes. The dough will spread out slightly.


After the cookies have baked, let them cool for 5 minutes. Dip just the top in the glaze and let the cookies dry. It should take about a half an hour to completely dry. Serve with cold milk, or my personal favorite… spiked hot cocoa. Enjoy!
