1996 1st Place Winner: Chocolate Shots

Author/Submitted by: Kimberly H. McGuire of Oak Park, Illinois, Chicago Tribune's 1996 Annual Holiday Cookie Contest
Servings: 3
Categories: Chocolate / Cookies / Desserts

1  cup  Unsalted butter, softened
1  cup  Confectioner's sugar
2  tablespoons  Vanilla extract
1 1/2  cups  All-purpose flour
1/2  tablespoon  Baking soda
1  cup  Rolled oats, not instant
4 1/2  ounces  Chocolate sprinkles

1. Beat butter in large bowl of electric mixer at high speed until creamy, about 1 minute. Add sugar and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Gradually beat in flour and baking soda until smooth. Stir in oats. Refrigerate dough in mixer bowl 10 minutes for easier handling.

2. Remove dough from refrigerator. Divide dough into 2 to 3 equal pieces. Roll each piece into a log about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Pour sprinkles into pie plate; roll logs in sprinkles to coat evenly. Wrap logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

3. Heat oven to 325'F. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices. Bake on greased baking sheet until lightly browned and slightly firm to the touch, about 20 minutes. Remove to cooling rack.
