Frosted Oatmeal Cookies πŸͺ

April 30th is National Oatmeal Cookie πŸͺ Day

An oatmeal raisin cookie is a type of drop cookie distinguished by an oatmeal-based dough with raisins mixed throughout. Its ingredients also typically include flour, sugar, eggs, salt, and various spices. A descendant of the Scottish oatcake, the oatmeal raisin cookie has become one of the most popular cookies in the United States.

When the cookies were becoming prominent in the United States in the early 1900s, they came to be known as a "health food" by reason of having increased fiber and vitamin contents from the oatmeal and raisins. Nonetheless, the nutritional value of an oatmeal raisin cookie is virtually equivalent to that of a chocolate chip cookie, with each having practically the same sugar, fat, calorie and fiber content.
