Slice And Bake Refrigerator Cookies

These cookies taste like so much more than the sum of the ingredients. 
Something about the oats and powdered sugar combination make them mouth-watering,
tender, and crisp. Make a few batches and store the dough in your fridge (up to four days) or the freezer (up to 3 months) to whip out for last-minute guests.

1 cup butter, softened (NO substitutes)
1 cup powdered sugar
Dash salt
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/4 cups flour
1 cup quick cooking oatmeal
Chocolate Star Candies

In a large bowl, cream together butter, sugar, and salt and add vanilla. 
Stir in flour and oats. Shape dough into 2 rolls, each 1-1/2" in diameter. 
Wrap well in waxed paper, twisting the ends to seal. Chill well, at least 2 
hours, before baking.

When ready to bake, cut dough into 1/4" slices and place on ungreased cookie 
sheets. Top each with a chocolate star. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes
or until light golden brown. Remove to racks to cool. 48 cookies

You can freeze this dough, unbaked, for up to 2 months. Just slice and bake 
right out of the freezer, adding a few minutes to the baking time.
