This is Susi's cookie recipe but has been adopted by my sister and me.- We love this recipe and so does my family and my daughter's 2nd grade classroom. These are healthy and moist;and what child or adult doesn't like frosting!
Thanks Susi.

How to Make Iced Oatmeal Applesauce Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350^.
    Cookie dough:
    Put butter and sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle or hook attachment.
    Mix on low speed until combined.
  2. Add egg and applesauce; mix until well blended, 2 to 3 minutes. Mix in oats, flours, baking powder and soda and salt.. Mix in crasins.
  3. Using a 1 1/2 -inch ice cream scoop, drop dough onto baking sheet lined with parchment paper, spacing 2 inches apart.
    Bake cookies 13-15 minutes-until golden and just set, rotating halfway through baking time. Let cool on sheets 5 minutes. Transfer to wire rack set over a piece of parchment paper, let cool completely.
  4. Icing:
    Whisk all ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over cookies; let set. Cookies can be stored in single layers in airtight containers at room temperature.
    I used melted white chocolate and drizzled it instead of the icing. My bad.
