    1       c            Butter or margarine -- soft
      3/4   c            Sugar
    1                    Egg
    1       t            Vanilla
    1 1/2   c            Sifted all-purpose flour
    1       t            Soda
      1/4   ts           Salt
    1 1/2   c            Quaker Oats, uncooked
                         -- (quick or old-fashioned)
   Beat butter until creamy.  Gradually add sugar, beating until fluffy.
   Blend in egg and vanilla.  Sift together flour, soda and salt.  Add to
   creamed mixture; blend well.  Stir in oats.  For ease in handling, chill
   dough about 1 hour.
   Shape to form 1-inch balls.  Place on ungreased cooky sheets.  Flatten
   slightly with bottom of glass dipped in sugar.  Insert flat wooden stick
   or wooden skewer into each.  Bake in preheated moderate oven (375 F.) 10 to
   12 minutes; cool.
   Frost cookies with confectioners' sugar frosting.  Attach chocolate shot
   for hair and gumdrop pieces for eyes, nose and mouth.  For girl cookies,
   pipe a bow onto hair with thick frosting.  Tie a ribbon bow onto stick for
   boy’s bow tie.
   When frosting is set, insert sticks into large gumdrops so that cookies
   stand up.
