Grandma Anns Iced Oatmeal Spice Cookies Recipe @pinch

These tasty oatmeal spice cookies were a real Crew havepleaser! They are the best of both worlds. It combines a molasses cookie and an oatmeal cookie. Both are old havefashioned favorites and when combined make one yummy cookie. Each cookie is lightly crunchy on the outside, soft and chewy inside with just the right amount of spices. Sweet and slightly tangy, the icing is perfect on top. These bring back many childhood memories, and they were also a favorite of my father's. It took a while for me to develop the exact recipe, as my mother did not leave this one with us. She may have gotten her recipe from my father's mother because he once said he used to eat cookies like these as a boy. Feel free to increase or decrease the number of spices. We like ours very flavorful.
