Kumquat Glazed Honey Oat Cookies

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

Kumquat Glaze

2 cups powdered sugar

1/4 cup kumquat juice

Recipe: Cookies

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.

Wild Blueberry Chocolate Chunk Oatmeal Cookies

These are probably my favorite cookies that I’ve made so far. Soft, chewy, filled with oats, dried blueberries, and chocolate…so good! You don’t have to use dried wild blueberries, or dried blueberries, but I highly suggest it.

Why are these delicious, super chewy cookies called Everything Cookies? Simply because they have everything in them! Seriously, these cookies have mini peanut butter cups, miniature Kit Kats, M&Ms, two kinds of chocolate chips, and oats. How could you possible go wrong with these?
