These are tasty and addictive oat biscuits which make their own icing as they bake. The dough needs to chill for two hours.
I just started baking. I'm seventeen and I'm just trying to find recipes that will be good for my family when I get responsible enough to have one..=D..so I cooked my mom dinner saturday night and made these as dessert and they are FABULOUS right out of the oven when they are still a little warm yet. I went light on the oats because I added raisins to half of the batch-MISTAKE. The ones ROLLED IN the powdered sugar didn't even taste like oatmeal cookies when cooled, but the ones i didn't roll in the confectioners' sugar tasted like oatmeal. MY ADVICE: add all the oats, add raisins if you want, don't use the confectioners' sugar. these are amazing and the best oatmeal cookies my mom said she'd ever had, and oatmeal are her favorite. <3 These made me thirty (30) cookies, I don't ever think the serving amount is correct. I pulled them out a bit earlier and still days later they are super moist. Delish. Will definately make again--THANKS.! - 21 Nov 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I hate to give a negative review but I thought I had a very sweet tooth. I love sugar, but these were like taking a teaspoonful of sugar and putting it in your mouth. Definietly not disgusting cookies, goodness knows my kids LOVED them, but it's the first time anything has been to sugary for me. - 23 May 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
These are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever made or tasted. I chilled the dough for 3 hours, and I rolled it lightly in 10x sugar-the self made glaze is terrific. They are chewy, not cake like. I highly recommend this recipe. - 22 Feb 2004 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
