Hey yall!!!  Ahhh summer time!  Time to relax and soak in the sun!  Around here that also means keeping plenty of iced tea in the fridge at all times lol!  Summer also means road trips, trips to visit family out of state, small road trips to the beach all sorts of road trips!  Chances are you are going to be on some kind of road trip this summer, am I right?

I love getting in the car and going, we don’t even have to end up anywhere I just love car rides (now I sound like a puppy lol).  Thankfully Dan is the same way too, he just loves to get in the car and take a road trip anywhere.  With a 4-year-old those trips mean one super long nap!  Car rides knock that kid right out!

I love to plan and prepare and pack so I headed to Walmart to grab a few things for our road trip to the beach.  While at Walmart I grabbed some Lemon Lift Bigelow Tea to make a big pitcher of iced tea to take with us.

We love making our tea with Bigelow because I know that it is quality tea packed in a foil patch for freshness.  I just enjoy that it is a family owned American company, and that they make such amazing tea flavors!

Back at home I knew I wanted to make a snack for our road trip and a quick browse through the pantry revealed a massive thing of oatmeal just hanging out waiting to be made into cookies.

Now my mom has a thing for oatmeal cookies and iced tea, she could live off the two forever.  So naturally the oatmeal cookies were a perfect match with the iced tea for a nice car snack.

But wait!  Why stop there?  I should put the tea in the cookies!!!!  Oh and in a lemony glaze!!!  Genius right? Genius and delicious!!

I just took my favorite simple oatmeal cookie recipe and instead of vanilla flavored it with the tea.

Then when they were cooled I just mixed some of the tea with lemon and powdered sugar and made an amazing glaze!

Not only are these cookies simply scrumptious, they make an amazing easy to transport road trip snack.

    These cookies look amazing! I grew up loving oatmeal iced cookies. I looked forward to my dad packing my school lunch because he would always add an oatmeal cookie. The grown up version with my favorite Bigelow tea sounds awesome! #client
