Chewy Oatmeal Logs
- Preheat oven to 350 and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Whisk together the dry ingredients together in a bowl: flour, soda, cinnamon, salt and ginger. Beat shortening and sugar together on medium-high until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until combined. Add molasses and 1 tsp. vanilla and beat until incorporated. Reduce speed to low, or stir manually as you add the flour mixture in three additions, stirring until just combined. Stir in the oats, raisins and walnuts.
- Divide the dough in 4 equal-ish pieces. It will be sticky. Roll (as best you can) each piece into a 9-inch log and space logs 3 inches apart length-wise on baking sheets. Bake until lightly browned and just set, about 16-19 minutes. Let logs cool on sheets for 5 minutes. Slide parchment onto counter and cut logs crosswise into 1 1/2-inch wide rectangles. Let cool completely.
- Whisk powdered sugar, milk and 1/2 tsp. vanilla until smooth. It should be good and drizz
