Glazed Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Glazed Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Am I overloading you with fall treats? I hope not, because so far I’ve only posted apple recipes – pumpkin is still to come! In the meantime however, let’s all enjoy these glazed apple oatmeal cookies. If you’ve been reading this blog for any length of time, you will know that I love pretty much any cookie that has a glaze on it, and these cookies are no exception. The actual cookies in this recipe are not overly sweet. They are soft and cake-like, and could almost pass as muffin tops. The cinnamon glaze adds a nice dose of sweetness and makes them a little more dessert-like. Although I have to say, I took these to a girls group at church, and we all ended up eating them for breakfast. 🙂 They do have oatmeal in them, so I say that makes them fair game to eat time of day.  🙂 No matter when you enjoy them, these glazed apple oatmeal cookies will add a delicious dose of cinnamon spice to your day. Enjoy!
