Glazed Oatmeal Cookie

Frosted Oatmeal Cookie

After our unexpected return from Paris I actually had little enthusiasm and inspiration to dive into the kitchen again and go prepare something. Well, we ran out of cookies and my husband and I are used to eat a cookie with our tea every evening, in fact, we really can not do without it. To leave the haunting experiences of our (unfortunately too short) visit to Paris somewhat behind, I forced myself to go into my kichten anyway and went to work.

I prepared a spicy cookie with cinnamon and nutmeg that I have incorporated in it and oatmeal as the base ingredient. I also glazed it with a layer of shiny crispy sugar. This purely to spoil my husband and myself a little after what we had experienced the day before in Paris.

I admit, in appearance it is not one of my best pieces of art but who cares, at least we can still enjoy which some of us unfortunately can not….
