Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F.

  • In medium-size bowl, stir together the oats, flour, cinnamon, allspice, cloves and salt until well mixed.

  • In large bowl, beat butter until smooth. Add brown sugar; beat until well mixed. Beat in egg whites, one at a time, scraping down side of bowl. Beat in vanilla extract.

  • Stir oat mixture into butter mixture, along with cinnamon chips and cranberries.

  • Lightly coat baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray. For each cookie, drop a scant 1/4 cup of batter into a mound onto baking sheets, 6 per sheet, for a total of 24. Flatten mounds slightly to form 3-inch rounds.

  • Bake in 375 degree F oven until lightly golden around edges, about 15 minutes. Let cookies cool on baking sheet 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to wire rack; let cool completely.

  • In small bowl, stir together confectioners sugar and just enough of the water until smooth and good drizzling consistency. Spoon mixture into a small plastic food-storage bag.

  • Place cookies close together on sheet of waxed paper. Snip off small corner of plastic bag containing the drizzle; squeeze the drizzle over the cookies. Let cookies stand until drizzle sets, about 15 minutes.

  • Cookies can be stored in airtight container at room temperature for up to 2 weeks. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
