Cookies
  1. Using a food processor, pulse the oats 10-12 times. You want a mixture of chopped oats and oat flour. DON’T SKIP THIS STEP!
  2. In a medium bowl whisk the pulsed oats, flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl beat the sugar, brown sugar and butter on medium high speed using a hand or stand mixer. About 2-3 minutes.
  4. Next, add in the eggs, vanilla and molasses to the butter/sugar mixture. Beat on high speed until well combined. About 1-2 minutes.
  5. Now, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Beat on low until just combined. The dough will be sticky and thick. Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and chill for 45-60 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  7. You will want your balls of dough to be approximately 1 1/2 tablespoons in size. Place them about 3 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake 12-14 minutes for a chewy cookie. A couple minutes longer for a crunchy cookie.
  8. Allow the cookies to sit on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack for cooling.
Icing
  1. Once the cookies have completely cooled you can ice them. Add the sifted powdered sugar, milk and vanilla to a medium bowl. Stir until you get it as combined as you can. Your icing will be very thick. You will not be able to get it fully combined and that is ok. Very gently dip the top of the cookies into the icing (sometimes a circular, rocking motion helps to not completely coat it so you can have part of the cookie coming through). Set them back on the cooling rack. It will take a few hours for the icing to completely harden. Don’t place them on top of each other in a container until they are completely hardened.
