Oatmeal Butter Cookies

Cook Time: 12 minutes

1 cup butter, softened (NO substitutes!)
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sifted flour
1-1/2 cups quick cooking oatmeal

In large bowl, beat butter until smooth. Add sugar, beating until fluffy. Stir in vanilla, then add flour. Mix in oatmeal. Chill in refrigerator until firm.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Shape dough into marble-sized balls and place on cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with the bottom of a drinking glass dipped into granulated sugar. Dip glass into sugar between each cookie to re-sugar glass. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until cookies are just set. Do not brown! Cool on cookie sheets for about a minute, then remove to wire racks to cool. Makes about 36 cookies.
