Here is a recipe that I have made previous years at Christmas time but this year I think I will make them for Valentine's Day. They are really good.


3/4 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 2/3 c. all-purpose flour
1 1/2 c. quick-cooking oats
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/8 tsp. salt
powdered sugar
Cream butter, sugar and brown
sugar together. Add egg and
vanilla and beat well. Blend in dry
ingredients, except powdered
sugar, and chill overnight. Divide
dough and roll out on powdered
sugar; cut out with cookie cutters.
Bake at 350 degrees for 5 to 8
minutes. Makes appoximately 3
dozen cookies, depending on the
size of the cookie cutter.
