Iced Oatmeal Cookies

We're all very excited that my sister is having a baby girl in June.   Her shower was this weekend, and there was soo much delicious food there.   Caprese Pasta Salad, Tollhouse Pie, Lemon Coconut Pixies & these Iced Oatmeal Cookies were my contribution.

Lots of Oatmeal cookie fans in my family, and when I saw these on Pinterest I snagged them right away.     I made only one change, and that was to use quick oats instead of old fashioned, because I had a lot of them on hand.    I doubled the recipe, and used my 1" cookie scoop.

I got so many complements on these, actually having to pull out my phone and give people the link to the blog because they all wanted the recipe.   Thank you so much to Jennifer at Mother Thyme for this instant family favorite!

Iced Oatmeal Cookies

Iced Oatmeal Cookies


  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (I used quick 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 butter -- (2 sticks) softened
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Glaze
  • 2 cups confectioners sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk


  1. Heat oven to 350ยบ. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Pulse oats in a food processor. Just break them up a little, don't grind them into a powder. This helps the cookie keep their shape.
  2. Combine flour, bp, bs, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and oats. In a stand mixer, cream butter, sugar and brown sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, scraping down bowl if necessary. Add vanilla. Slowly add flour mixture until combined.
  3. Scoop cookies with 1" scoop onto lined sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 mins. Let cool on the sheets for 5 mins before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Prepare glaze, mixing confectioner's sugar and milk together. Move wire racks over the parchment lined sheets (this makes clean up super easy!) Dip tops of cookies into glaze, let excess drip off and then place onto rack.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time!

Lemon Pizzelles

  One of the first cookies I can remember eating is a pizzelle, and I'm still a huge fan today.  Even though you need a special iron to make them, the rest of it is really so simple. This time around I took the basic pizzelle recipe and instead of vanilla or anise, I used Adams lemon extract. I also used some of their yellow food coloring to distinguish them from my regular pizzelle.
