Christmas Cookies

Some years I do a better job of Christmas baking than othersThis year my girls wanted to make cut-out sugar cookies.  I love eating them, but making them is time consuming.  Luckily my mom will make cut-out cookies with them whenever they visit her, and has a great recipe that is just a bit different from the norm- and perhaps a bit healthier.

1 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
2 1/2 c. sifted flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. quick oatmeal

Cream butter and sugar.  Add egg and vanilla and beat well.  Sift flour and salt together and add to creamed mixture. Add oats and mix well.  Roll dough on lightly floured surface to 1/8 in. thickness. Cut cookies.  Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 375 for 8-10 minutes. Cool and frost.
