Spiced Apple Oatmeal Cookies With Brown Butter Icing

These soft, chewy, spiced apple oatmeal cookies are good on their own, but they're even better with a warm brown butter glaze. Made with chopped Honeycrisp apples, brown sugar and buttermilk the ingredients are fresh and work together wonderfully. The brown butter icing paired with the crunch of oatmeal gives the cookie a lovely nut-like smell and texture without using any nuts (a big win in nut-free households!). These spiced cookies are perfect in autumn and can easily be made at Christmastime, too.
