This recipe was discovered inside one of my favorite cookbooks – With Heart & Soul:  Recipes Created by and Designed to be Shared AMONG FRIENDS.  Grandma Milligan’s Iced Oatmeal Cookies has quickly become a favorite in our household since. There really isn’t much to say about these cookies except that they are melt in your mouth GOOD!   Helpful hint:  Place cooling racks on counter lined with wax paper when icing these cookies makes for an easy clean up!

Grandma Milligan’s Iced Oatmeal Cookies
1 cup butter or margarine (I prefer unsalted butter)
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 Tbsp. honey
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups quick oats
     Cream together butter and sugar; add eggs, honey and vanilla.  Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.  Gradually add to creamed mixture.  Stir in oats.  Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.  Bake at 350 degree F. for 6-7 minutes.  Cool for about a minute on wire rack.  Then ice with a thick powdered sugar glaze.
     Glaze:  Mix about 1 cup powdered sugar and 2 Tbsp. milk until smooth.
