  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan on the stove over medium-low heat..
  • Reduce the heat to low and stir or whisk in the white and brown sugars. Cook over low heat until the sugars have begun to melt into the butter.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and stir until combined.
  • Stir in the salt and baking soda.
  • Add the flour, stirring in ¼-½ cup at a time until the flour is incorporated and all of the ingredients are smooth.

If using a small cookie scoop, you should be able to get about 2 dozen cookies from the batter.
