Glazed Oatmeal Raisin Coffee Cookies

8 Sep

I’ve made these cookies a few times and they are delicious!  This recipe is adapted from The Great American Cookie Cookbook.  I didn’t have enough Kahula to make the icing so I used Grand Marnier.  I’ve included both the original icing ingredients as well as my variation using Grand Marnier.

Cookie Ingredients:

  • 1 & 1/4 Crisco stick
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup coffee flavor liqueur (I use Kahula)
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 & 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 & 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 3 cups Quaker oats (quick or old-fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1 & 1/2 cup raisins

Original Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 tbsp of coffee flavor liqueur
  • 1 tsp cold coffee

Variation Icing Ingredients:

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 & 1/2 tsp cold coffee
  • 1 & 1/2 tsp Grand Marnier


  1. Pre-heat oven to 375F.  Place sheets of wax paper on countertop for cooling cookies.
  2. In a large bowl, combine Crisco, brown sugar & granulated sugar.  Mix at medium speed until well blended.  Beat in egg, Kahula and vanilla.
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, baking soda and nutmeg.  Add gradually to creamed mixture at low-speed.
  4. Stir in oats and raisins.
  5. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet.
  6. Bake at 375F for 9 minutes.  Do not over bake.  Cool on baking sheet and then transfer to wax paper to cool completely.
  7. Once all cookies have been baked and cooled, combine confectioners’ sugar, Grand Marnier (or Kahula) and coffee in a medium-sized bowl.  Add additional liquid as needed to thin out icing or add additional confectioners’ sugar as needed to thicken up icing.  Stir until smooth.  Drizzle on top of cookies.  (I transferred the icing to my Make ‘n Mold squeeze bottle for drizzling.)
