Iced Oatmeal Cookies


Today's recipe was inspired by one over at Cooking Classy. It had been awhile since I made oatmeal cookies, and that recipe looked so good. Mine are adapted some and got the family seal of approval.

Iced Oatmeal Cookies
2 c. quick-cooking oats
2 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. nutmeg
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup Butter Flavor Crisco
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 t. vanilla

Icing
2 c. powdered sugar
3 T. milk
1/2 t. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients together, including oats, and whisk to combine. Set aside. In mixer bowl, whip butter, shortening and sugars together until fluffy--about 4 minutes. (Don't skimp on the whipping time!) Add eggs and beat well. Stir in vanilla. With mixer on low, stir in dry ingredients and mix til just combined. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for about 11-12 minutes, or until just turning golden around the edges. Remove to a wire rack and spread with a light coat of icing. Icing will set as it cools.
