Why are my cookies tough?

Be careful not to over mix the oatmeal ice cookie dough. This can cause the gluten in the flour to develop too much, resulting in hard or tough cookies. Follow the mixing instructions on the recipe card below. No problem.

How to keep oatmeal cookies soft?

One of the best parts of iced oatmeal cookies is their soft, crunchy center. For best results, always bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything higher than this will cure just like overmixing.

Can I use quick oats instead of rolled oats?

absolutely! Feel free to use both quick-his and rolled oats interchangeably in recipes such as oatmeal iced cookies. If you have rolled oats on hand, I recommend running them through a food processor a few times for a better texture.

Are Quaker Oats the same as Quick Oats?

Read the oat label carefully. Quaker brand oats come in a variety of varieties. We like to use quick oats. because they are cut into smaller pieces. This means it will bake faster.

Troubleshooting: thin icing

If the icing on your frosted oatmeal cookies is too thin, you can add more powdered sugar to the mixture.

Freezer description:

You can freeze the iced oatmeal cookie dough or bake it first and store it in the freezer for later.

  • To freeze dough: Form cookie dough balls, place on a parchment-lined baking sheet, and freeze. Once they’re completely frozen (about 1-2 hours), place them in an airtight freezer-safe bag and store in the freezer for up to 2 months. Place in and thaw as oven preheats. Bake for 12-15 minutes, following icing instructions shown on recipe card below.
  • To freeze already baked cookies: Once the oatmeal ice cream has cooled completely, place it in a freezer-safe, airtight container. It is recommended to put parchment paper between each layer. Stored for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before serving. If you like your cookies warm, you can also heat them in the microwave in 30 second increments, or bake them in the oven at 350 degrees F for 5 minutes.
