Oatmeal Drizzles

I am loving the new cookbook I got, The 100 Best Vegan Baking Recipes by Kris Holechek over at nom! nom! nom! blog.   I made her Oatmeal Drizzles and they were deliciously moist, chewy and full of flavor.  I almost never put icing on a cookie because I think they are sweet enough as it is but I might be a convert after these cookies.  I couldn’t find just dried cherries so I substituted a bag of mixed dried berries and they were great.

Oatmeal Drizzles Cookies

Oatmeal Drizzles

1 cup flour

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/8 tsp salt

1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp margarine, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 cup quick oats

1/2 cup dried tart cherries

1 recipe White Icing (see below)

Pre-heat the oven to 350*F.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a small bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.  In a large bowl, cream together margarine, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla.  Add flour mixture to sugar mixture.  Add oatmeal in batches, and then stir in cherries.

Drop heaping tablespoon-sized cookies on baking sheets, about 3 inches apart.  Bake for 11-14 minutes or until cookies are set in the center and the edges are lightly browned.  If you are baking more than one sheet at a time, rotate the sheets halfway through the baking time.  Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.  After the cookies are completely cool, drizzle them with White Icing and let icing set.  Store cooled cookies in an airtight container at room temperature.  Make 2 dozen cookies.

White Icing

2 Tbsp Milk

1 1/2 -2 cups powdered sugar, sifted

In a small bowl, whisk milk and powdered sugar together to desired thickness.  I had to add about 3 Tbsp more milk to get the right consistency.  I then put the icing in a sandwich bag and cut off the corner to drizzle the icing over the cookies.

This is one of my entries in Madhuram’s Whole Grain Eggless Baking Event – Oats

  1. Yay! I know what you mean about icing on cookies, the drizzle is just enough.

    I’m so glad you’re liking the book!

  2. The book sounds very interesting. Will look for it in the local library. You can send this one too for the Oats event.

  3. Please include a link to the event announcement here too. Thanks.
