Frosted Oatmeal Cookies

Oh boy! These are delightful!

1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter or shortening
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Cream sugar, butter, eggs and vanilla. Then throw everything else in and mix until all incorporated. Refrigerate for 4 to 5 hours or overnight. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Drop by mounded teaspoons on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten with bottom of cup dipped in sugar. Bake for 10 minutes. Once cooled frost with whatever butter cream frosting you prefer and enjoy!

A couple tips! Mine spread a whole lot because I wasn't patient enough to refrigerate them. My next go round I will for sure do that step. Make sure you don't over bake them. That makes them overly crispy. The frosting isn't necessary but it really makes them delightful! I used homemade butter cream but store bought frosting would be just great too!
