3 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup (227 grams) butter, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Add the flour mixture and beat until you have a smooth dough. Divide the dough in half and wrap each half in cling wrap, chill in the fridge for an hour.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch.
