  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat together the butter and sugars until soft and creamy. Add the eggs, soda, powder, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and ginger until combined. Add the oats, flour and raisins and mix dough until everything is combined. Roll dough into golf ball sized pieces and place 9-12 on a greased cookie sheet. Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes, or until the cookies are cooked but still soft (you don't want them overly cooked). While the cookies are baking, make the browned butter glaze.
Browned Butter Glaze
  1. In a sauce pan, add the butter and turn on medium high heat. Let the butter begin to cook and boil, until the butter begins to turn a light brown color. If you stir the butter with a spoon you will see small brown flecks forming in the butter. When the butter begins to turn brown you can remove it from the heat and whisk in the powdered sugar. As the powdered sugar becomes thick, add enough milk or water to make the glaze a drizzling consistency. Add the vanilla and continue to whisk until the glaze is completely smooth (no powdered sugar lumps left).
  2. Once the cookies are cooked, remove them from the oven and place on a cooling rack with a cookie sheet under neat (the frosting will drip). Drizzle the warm glaze over the cookies. Serve the cookies warm or cooled. Either way, they are delicious!

The cookie dough, was sort of sticky.

The baked cookie.The brown butter icing, it makes quite a bit especially since I thinned mine down. Here is the final drizzled cookies! Wow they were yummy! I drizzled a TON because I really like frosting but I think in this situation less might have been more! Thank you Paula Deen (my favorite food network star) for making my father in law’s birthday a success.
