Jane's Oatmeal Spice Cookies
with Ginger Glaze

Jane likes spice cookies and ginger snaps, but wanted something with a softer, more chewy texture. So she came up with this:

oatmeal spice cookies
1 stick butter (1/2 c)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon coriander
1/4 teaspoon cardamom
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cups oatmeal

mix in order listed
chill dough until firm
heat oven to 375
roll into 1" balls 
place 2" apart on cookie sheet
bake 10 minutes
drizzle with ginger glaze

ginger glaze
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1 teaspoon ginger
a few tablespoons water

melt butter, cook until lightly browned
add sugar, stir thoroughly
add vanilla and ginger
add water, a tablespoon at a time, until smooth
boil 1 minute
drizzle over cookies

note: don't start the sauce until 
all the cookies are ready--
it thickens quickly as it cools
