Preheat oven to 400. Sift together flour, salt, and baking soda.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I have frequently made this recipe. Sometimes during the holidays I use colored sugar but most of the time I simply drop the dough with my cookie scoop, do not press down and the cookies come out thicker and just as delicious. I like to add dried cranberries in mine; it gives the cookies an added zing/tartness. I use my Pampered Chef stoneware and not my regular baking pans--no greasing, no parchment paper needed.
