Thin Vanilla Oatmeal Cookies recipe

I love oats. They are one of the healthiest foods, and you can enjoy them at breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can also add them to desserts to help make the best part of the meal heartier, crunchier and better for your heart.

Oatmeal in cookies are my favorite way to make cookies a bit healthier, and icing them using Bliss makes them even more naturally delicious. And if you like a super soft cookie, you can bake them a little less or bake them longer for a more crunchy treat. Enjoy National Oatmeal Month!

Thin Vanilla Oatmeal Cookies



PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

COMBINE flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in medium bowl; stir.

BEAT butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in medium mixer bowl at medium-low speed until just combined. Increase speed to medium; continue to beat about 1 minute longer or until light and creamy. Scrape down bowl with rubber spatula. Add egg and 1 tablespoon Coffee-mate; beat on medium-low speed until fully incorporated. With mixer running at low speed, add flour mixture; mix just until incorporated and smooth. With mixer still running on low, gradually add oats; mix until well incorporated.

SCOOP dough by level tablespoon, then roll between palms into balls. Place on ungreased baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Using fingertips, gently press each dough ball to 3/4-inch thickness.

BAKE for 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and edges are crisp. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

COMBINE powdered sugar, remaining 3 tablespoons Coffee-mate and orange peel in medium bowl; stir well. With fork or spoon, drizzle over cookies. Allow glaze to set for 15 minutes before serving.
