Both of my kids love oatmeal cookies.  So I decided to step it up a notch and make these classic iced oatmeal cookies one day. 
My son instantly fell in love and told me I had to name them Oatmeal Cookies 2.0 because 2.0 is the better version than the 1.0, which is what he calls my regular oatmeal cookies. HA!
He's such a silly boy, but smart, because these are better!
