How to make it

  1. In large bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer until creamy. In separate bowl, combine flour, oats and salt; mix well.

  3. Heat oven to 350°F. Unwrap one roll of dough and cut into 1/4‑inch slices. Place slices about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Repeat with remaining rolls.
  4. Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack. Cool completely.
  5. Divide frosting in half. Cover and refrigerate half of frosting for another use. Tint remaining frosting with food colouring, if desired. 
  6. Spread frosting on bottom of one cooled cookie; top with second cookie. Roll edge of frosting in decorations. Repeat with remaining cookies. Store tightly covered.
