1/3  cup  Shortening, soft
3/4  cup  Brown sugar, firmly packed
1    Egg
1  teaspoon  Vanilla
1 1/4  cups  Sifted all-purpose flour
1/2  teaspoon  Soda
1/2  teaspoon  Salt
1/4  cup  Milk
1 1/2  cups  Quaker Oats, uncooked
    (quick or old-fashioned)
    Red cinnamon candies
    Green colored sugar
    Chocolate shot

Beat shortening and sugar together until creamy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Sift together flour, soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Stir in oats. Chill dough several hours. Roll out on lightly floured board or canvas to 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out "tree-tops" with floured 3-1/2-inch round cutter. Cut out "tree trunks" about 1 inch tall with sharp knife. Place circles on greased cooky sheet; attach "tree trunks". Press cinnamon candies into "tree tops" and sprinkle with green colored sugar. Sprinkle "tree trunks" with chocolate shot. Bake in preheated moderate oven (350 F.) 8 to 10 minutes. NOTE: Cookies can be cut with a tree-shaped cutter, if desired. Decorate as above.
