Basic Dough for Assorted Christmas Cookies

Because of my native tradition, we always have to have BUTTER COOKIES for Christmas/New Year and each year I always make dozens of butter cookies with different flavor and filling.
Lasty lear, inspired by Goodhousekeeping magazine, I tried this batch to make several favorite christmas cookies and it turned out great. I think I'll make some more of this beside other stuff.

- 2 ¾ cup(s) all-purpose flour
- ¼ teaspoon(s) baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon(s) salt
- 1 cup(s) (2 sticks) butter (no substitutions), softened
- ¾ cup(s) granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon(s) vanilla extract

- On waxed paper, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
- In large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar 1 minute or until creamy,
occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well mixed.
- Reduce speed to low; gradually beat in flour mixture just until blended, occasionally scraping
- Follow directions for your choice of cookie.
