  • Crack the egg in small bowl or measuring cup then add to butter and sugar mixture. Add vanilla.
  • Beat egg and vanilla in the dough for five seconds to incorporate.

  • Drop scoops of dough about the size of a medium egg on the cookie sheet. Bake no more than 8

  • Bake for 8 minutes. Remove pan from oven and tap against the counter to make the cookies fall.
