Oatmeal cookies immediately make me think of comforting, cozy afternoons at home, especially these delicious iced ones.

Growing up, oatmeal cookies were one of my mother’s specialties. It seemed like she could have a plate of warm oatmeal cookies ready at the blink of an eye whenever we needed a little bit of extra time with her. I guess that’s why they remind me so much of cozy afternoons reading or just talking with Mama.

Periodically, she’d add an extra special touch of drizzling cookie icing over the top of her oatmeal cookies and then, all was right with the world. Her cookies soothed whatever ailed ya and cheered on whatever achievements you’d made.

Now, don’t get me wrong, iced oatmeal cookies will never be flashy or fancy like decorated cookies or even my Grandmother’s Divinity. That’s just not the role that I have in mind for an oatmeal cookie.

They are; however, the cookie I like to turn to when I think of home and growing up where my biggest care in the world was getting home in time in the afternoons to watch The Brady Bunch. Oddly enough, even then I was more interested in what Alice had going on than in what Marcia’s dress looked like. Heh.

    These cookies are absolutely delicious!! Bake these and you’ll never eat the store-bought version ever again!! I didn’t have any raisins so I subbed in Craisins and it worked great.
