Grab one or two! Iced Oatmeal Cookies make a great after-school or after-dinner treat, especially in the fall months. Applesauce helps keep the cookies moist.


  • 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup of light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup of chunky applesauce
  • 1-1/2 cups of old-fashioned, rolled oats
  • 1/1/4 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of course salt
  • 1 cup of raisins
  • For icing: 1-3/4 cup of confectioner's sugar
  • 3 tablespoons of pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons of water


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter and sugars into a bowl and combine using an electric mixer on low speed.
  2. Add the egg and applesauce and mix until well blended (about 2-3 minutes). Mix in oats, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt, then the raisins.
  3. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and drop the cookie dough from a spoon, about 2 inches apart from each other. Bake until the cookies begin to turn golden (about 13-15 minutes).
  4. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes. Then transfer to wire racks.
  5. For the icing, whisk together the confectioner's sugar, water and syrup until smooth. Drizzle over completely cooled cookies and allow to set.
