These Spiced Oatmeal Cookies are a fan favorite because they contain a fantastic combination of spices.  


FOR THE COOKIES: – 2 cups (240g) all-purpose flour – 1 teaspoon baking powder – 1/2 teaspoon baking soda – 1/2 teaspoon salt – 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon – 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger – 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg – 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice – 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom – 2 cups (160g) quick cooking oat – 3/4 cup (170g) unsalted butter, softened – 1 & 1/4 cups (250g) firmly packed light brown sugar – 2 large egg – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract FOR THE ICING: – 2 cups (220g) confectioners’ sugar, sifted – 2 to 4 tablespoons milk

Making cookies: Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cardamom. Mix in oats. Set aside.  

Step 1 


Beat butter and brown sugar until frothy with a medium-speed electric mixer. After adding each egg, stir well. Mix in vanilla.  

Step 2

Lower mixer speed. Add flour mixture slowly, mixing just until incorporated. Refrigerate dough for an hour.  

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350°F. Cover baking sheets with parchment or silicone. On prepared pans, drop 2-tablespoon amounts of dough. Flatten each cookie's top slightly.  

Step 4

Bake 12–14 minutes until cookie edges are golden. Let cookies cool on the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to finish cooling.  

Step 5

To make icing: Mix confectioners' sugar and 2 tablespoons milk. The glaze should be thick but pourable, so add milk a teaspoon at a time.  

Step 6

Glaze each cooled cookie. For icing to set, place cookies on waxed paper.
