Ingredients

    7 oz. AP flour, by weight
    .75 tsp baking powder
    .5 tsp kosher salt
    4 oz (1 stick) butter (@ room temp)
    3.5 oz sugar, by weight
    1 large egg
    4 tsp vanilla extract
    1 TB whole milk


Directions

Position 1 rack in bottom third of oven, and 1 rack in top third. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt onto a flexible paper plate, and set aside.

Cream together the butter and sugar on medium speed for 2 minutes. Add the egg and incorporate for about 30 seconds. Add the vanilla & milk and blend on low about 15 seconds.

Scrape the sides of the bowl, then start to slowly add the dry ingredients, bending the paper plate like a taco shell to help you add them to the bowl. Once you've added all the flour, scrape the sides one more time, mix a few more seconds, and then move the bowl to the refrigerator. Chill the batter for at least 10 minutes before scooping.

Line 2 half-sheet baking pans with parchment paper. Scoop the chilled batter in *teaspoon sized* balls and arrange them about *35 cookies per pan*. When done scooping, spray the heel of your hand lightly with cooking spray to prevent sticking, and lightly press each ball to flatten. Bake for 15-20 minutes, rotating the pans halfway through baking. Remove to a cooling rack when done to cool completely.

* tsp scooper = about 70 cookies
* TB scooper = about 28 cookies
