  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup dark molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons half and half



  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar together until completely creamy. Beat in molasses, egg, and vanilla until smooth. In a separate bowl, combine oats, flour, baking soda, spices, and salt.
  • Fold flour mixture into liquid until a soft dough forms. Scoop dough into 1-in balls and place 1-in apart on prepared baking sheets.
  • Bake cookies at 350F 10-12 minutes until edges are golden (middles will still look soft - this is ok) Cool cookies on pan 5 minutes then transfer to a wire rack.


  • In a small bowl, whisk glaze ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over cooled cookies. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
