Ingredients
Cookies:
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. ground allspice
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground cloves
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup chopped pecans optional
Frosting:
  • 5 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter melted
  • 1/3 to 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • White sprinkles optional
Instructions
Cookies:
  1. Cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs. In another bowl, whisk next seven ingredients; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in raisins and, if desired, pecans. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; cover. Refrigerate until firm enough to roll, about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut dough with a floured 21/4-in. round cookie cutter. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake until light brown, 7-9 minutes. Cool 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
Frosting:
  1. Beat confectioners' sugar, butter and enough milk to reach spreading consistency. Spread over cookies. If desired, top with white sprinkles.

Makes about 4 dozen cookies
