Iced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Yield: about 3-1/2 dozen
1 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
3 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup raisins
1 cup coarsely chopped pecans, optional
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
3 Tbs. heavy cream
1 Tbs water
tiny pinch salt (optional)
In bowl, stir together all of the ingredients until smooth and desired consistency. Dip top of cookie into the bowl and give a little twist; lift cookie from icing to see if adequate amount is on cookie. The frosting will quickly smooth to a nice covering. Place on rack and allow icing to dry and harden. If you prefer, the icing can just as easily be spread on with a knife or spreader.
- I used a 1.5-inch scoop to measure the cookie dough and I got a little more than 3.5 dozen cookies. I filled each cookie sheet with 12 cookies and, since my cookie dough balls were larger than 1-inch, I baked for 18 minutes.
- I did not flatted the dough before baking and they were a perfect shape.
- I omitted the nuts though I thinks nut would be good.
