1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/8 tsp salt
4 tbsp butter, softened
2/3 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg white
Nonstick cooking spray
Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a small bowl; set aside.
In large mixer bowl beat the butter at medium speed until light and fluffy. Gradually add the sugar to the butter, continuing to beat until well-blended. Add the egg white and vanilla; beat well. Add the flour mixture and stir until well combined.
Turn the dough out onto waxed paper and shape into a 6-inch log. Wrap log up in waxed paper and freeze for 3 hours or until very firm.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Cut the dough log into 24 even slices. Spray baking sheet/sheets lightly with the nonstick cooking spray. Place the slices 1-inch apart on the baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove cookies from the baking sheet and cool on wire racks.
