Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
1 cup unsalted butter, 1 ½ cups granulated sugar
Add in the salt, egg, and vanilla.
¼ teaspoon salt, 1 egg, 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Slowly add in the flour.
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
Form dough into three balls. Place in a bowl, cover, and chill dough for at least three hours.
Once the dough has chilled, preheat your oven to 375°F.
Cover baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone mat.
Lightly flour your surface for cutting out the cookies.
Take out the dough balls and let them warm up a little while your oven is preheating if the dough is very hard. Roll out the dough to about ¼” thickness. Cut out cookies with your cookie cutter and place them onto your prepared baking sheet. Leave about an inch in between each cookie.
Bake for 8 - 10 minutes.
Let cookies cool completely.
