Ring Around the Cookie

Ring Around the Cookie

Grandma Barker used to love how easy these were, and how pretty they are! I always loved that we could make a log of sugar cookie dough, and slice and bake them as needed. They are very buttery, so taste more like a sliced shortbread than a sugar cookie.


  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • Sprinkles, colored sugar or crushed nuts


  1. Cream butter and sugar. Add vanilla and mix well.

  2. Mix in remaining ingredients (except sprinkles) just until blended.

  3. Shape into a log, about 2 inches in diameter. Roll in sprinkles.

  4. Wrap in wax paper, and refrigerate overnight.

  5. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375°

  6. Slice log onto 1/4" cookies.

  7. Place on cookie sheet and bake 8-10 minutes.
