My Oma was from Alsace Lorraine and these were the cookies she made every holiday season - they became a family tradition.
- 2⅓ cups flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ½ pound butter (real butter - lightly salted if you can find it, if not then 1 stick of salted and 1 stick of unsalted butter)
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla

Using lightly salted butter is very important as is softening it without microwaving - just leave the butter out on the counter to soften.
