Preheat over 350.

In a medium bowl combine flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

In a separate large bowl, beat the butter until pale yellow and the consistency of mayonnaise. Add sugar and beat until thoroughly mixed. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla and mix thoroughly. Add half of the flour mixture and mix. Add the other half and mix, again.

Roll one inch balls of dough, place on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart and use the palm of your hand to flatten the cookie dough. Bake for 8-10 minutes. If the cookies are not done finished baking, add one minute at a time until done.

Personal Notes:
If you want to use cookie cutters to form the cookies, refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours. Once done, roll out dough on a flour covered surface, cut out cookies, and bake for 8-10 minutes.

These cookies are SUPER good and soft. When I tired to make the cookies crunchy by adding more flour, they simply turned out chewier.... which is still delicious!
