Iced Oatmeal Cookies

I've got lots of cookie recipes but was looking for something new.  I came upon these cookies from Shugary Sweets and they looked really good.  I prefer my cookies to be a little more crisp, but I think these are pretty nice.  This is my version.


For the Cookie:
1 cup butter, melted and slightly cooled.
1 cup granulated sugar  
1/2 cup brown sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla 
2 eggs 
1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon  
1 teaspoon salt  
1 teaspoon baking soda  
1 tablespoon baking powder 
2 cups quick oats 
2 cups flour
1 cup chopped pecans
For the icing:
2 cups powdered sugar
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

In mixing bowl, blend together butter with sugars. Mix 1-2 minutes until combined. Add eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla.  Mix together dry ingredients and add to wet mixture.  Stir until thoroughly combined.
Drop by tablespoon or cookie scoop onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 16 minutes. Remove and cool.  To make glaze, whisk together powdered sugar with heavy cream and cinnamon until smooth. Frost each cookie and allow to harden. These harden nicely and can be stacked.
