3. cream together the butter & sugar until light & fluffy. add the egg & vanilla. beat well.

4. gradually add the dry ingredients, mixing just to combine.

5. using a tablespoon (or smaller cookie scoop), scoop dough & round into (approx.) 1" balls. place on prepared cookie sheet. slightly flatten cookies with the palm of your hand & bake 10 minutes.
