These cookies are ‘bar’ cookies with butter, confectioners sugar, oatmeal, vanilla and not sure what else. Had the recipe in the early 2000’s, my sister gave it to me and unfortunately, she is no longer alive. The cookies are rolled in ‘shotz’, either chocolate or the ‘rainbow’ colored on the sides you get these from the baking aisle. They are cut into approximately 1/4″ and baked on a non-greased baking sheet. Thanking in advance anyone who is able to assist!
I believe I have the cookie recipe you are searching for. My Mom gave me this recipe in the early ’80s and she credits her source as the “Chicago Tribune.” It may not be verbatim from the Tribune recipe, since I was just starting to bake and my Mom may have included a tip or something she did to make the recipe her own. I always make them with butter and they are delicious . . . enjoy! Ann

Cream butter and sugar until fluffy. Add vanilla, flour, baking soda and oatmeal. Mix well. Cover and refrigerate for about an hour.
Shape dough into a 1-1/2 inch diameter roll – Make 4 short rolls – easier to handle.
