    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Position a rack in the middle of oven; preheat to 350°.
    2. 2
      Grease several large baking sheets or coat with nonstick cooking spray.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, vigorously beat together the butter and 1/2 cup sugar until well blended and smooth.
    4. 4
      Add the egg, vanilla, and salt to the bowl; beat for 2 minutes or until the mixture is lightened in color and texture.
    5. 5
      Scrape down the sides as needed.
    6. 6
      Beat or stir in the flour just until evenly incorporated.
    7. 7
      Let stand to firm up for 5 minutes; if too soft to shape.
    8. 8
      If the dough is still too soft, work in up to 1 1/2 tablespoons more flour.
    9. 9
      With well greased hands, pull off dough portions and shape into scant 1-inch balls (alternately, scoop up balls of dough using a 1 1/4-inch diameter spring-loaded scoop).
    10. 10
      Space them about 2 1/2 inches apart on the baking sheets.
    11. 11
      Grease the bottom of a flat-bottomed glass and dip it into the 1/4 cup sugar.
    12. 12
      Press down on a ball to flatten it into a scant 2 1/4-2 1/2 inch, evenly thick round.
    13. 13
      Repeat, dipping the glass in the sugar, then flattening the balls.
    14. 14
      As needed, wipe excess sugar from the glass and re-grease the surface.
    15. 15
      Bake one sheet at a time for 8-12 minutes or until the cookies are lightly tinged at the edges.
    16. 16
      Transfer the baking sheets to wire racks; let stand until the cookies firm up slightly, about 4 minutes.
    17. 17
      Using a wide spatula, transfer the cookies to the wire racks; let cool.
