I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Soft Oatmeal Cookies

I usually like a crispy cookie. (Some would say hard cookies) but these soft oatmeal cookies have such a nice texture without being cakey. 

2 cups rolled oats
2 cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsps cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

3 tbsps 10% cream
2 cups icing sugar

Pulse the rolled oats in a food processor until it looks like this. Not completely pulverized, leave some texture.
Add the dry ingredients to the oats and set aside.

In a mixer bowl beat the butter, then add the sugars. Next add eggs one at a time and finally add the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients in 2 or 3 additions until combined.
Take heaping tablespoonfuls and roll into balls.  They roll easily and don't stick to your hands!
Place onto a lined baking sheet.  I did not flatten them, so leave about 2 inches between.

Bake at 350 F for 10 - 12 minutes.

Once the cookies are cooled on a rack, then whisk the icing sugar with 2 tbsps of cream. Add the other tbsp of cream if you want a thinner glaze.
Dip the cookies in the glaze, letting some of the excess run off, and let set before storing in an airtight container.

Grab a couple of these with a glass of milk!
