Picture this: A soft and chewy oatmeal cookie with a deep honey flavor- doesn’t that sound delicious? They were but they needed something more. Like a glaze. A citrus glaze. A tangy yet sweet super amazing kumquat glaze. Which brings you to perfection.
Ingredients: Cookies (adapted from Giant Honey and Oat Cookies in Betty Crockers Ultimate Cookie Book)
1 and 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
2/3 cups honey
1 large egg
1 large egg white
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 and 1/3 cups quick-cooking oats
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup kumquat juice
Preheat the oven to 350F and grease two baking sheets.
On low speed, mix together the sugar, butter, honey, egg, egg white, and vanilla for about 2 minutes. Then mix on medium speed until smooth and combined.
In a separate bowl, mix together the oats, flour, baking soda, and salt. Slowly add to the wet batter on low speed.
Scoop dough into 1/4 cup measurements.
Bake for 10 minutes- they will still be very soft on top and look undone. They’re not! Let cool before glazing.
Whisk together all ingredients!
