  • 1 stick (½ cup) of salted butter
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¼ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F.

  3. Add the vanilla and the egg; beat on low speed until just incorporated – 10-15 seconds.
  4. Add the flour and baking soda. Mix until crumbles form. Use your hands to press the crumbles together into a dough. It should form one large ball that is easy to handle.
