Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

It's cookie time again! 
Ava and I love to bake together and we found another recipe 
from her Mouse Cookies cookbook we wanted to try {and add our own twist too}.
 These Old Fashioned Iced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies came out just right - flavor packed with a hint of ginger and cinnamon and perfectly soft and chewy. They are best served warm or try them crumbled on top of ice cream or yogurt!
Cutest picture EVER of my sweet Ava!

These cookies were baked for us when we stayed at the Steel Magnolia Bed and Breakfast in Nachitoches, LA. Ever since then I have been looking for a similar recipe!

I know I have said it before but how cute is my little helper?!
Her stool is pretty cool too, right? Thanks Ashton!
I use my hand and a scoop to form balls of dough and drop 12-15 on a lined cookie sheet. 
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool on a cooling rack while
 you bake the rest of the cookies.
To make the icing simply mix together powdered sugar and milk.
Add more milk if needed until icing is smooth. 
Using a spoon or fork, drizzle icing over cooled cookies.
Let icing harden slightly before serving. 
I like to serve these warm or crumbled on top of yogurt or ice cream! Enjoy!
