Basic Sugar Cookie Dough
Recipe from Real Simple
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt together and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together the softened butter and sugar until smooth. Add the egg and beat about 2 minutes. Add the vanilla. Slowly add the flour mixture, a little at a time until all the flour is incorporated; the dough will be stiff. Shape the dough into a disc and depending on the recipe, wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour or up to three days.
