Hey! We made it to Thursday! I think that calls for some celebration right? The four day work week certainly hasn’t hurt either. But, let’s go ahead and make it even better with some cookies. I know a lot of people have already switched to full-on fall mode, but I’m still in transition. Oatmeal cookies seemed like the perfect option. They don’t feature seasonal fruits but they aren’t all pumpkin spice or apple everything (yet.) These are lightly spiced, chewy and pretty much perfect for any cookie craving. I’m in love.
I absolutely adore the way these look with the glaze, but FYI they taste equally fabulous without it. Whether you are looking for a slightly sweeter option or not, they work either way. I made some full size and some miniature for the kids’ lunch boxes. Even without all the bells and whistles, the kids absolutely love them. Who knew plain old oatmeal cookies could be so darn good?
