  3. Mix in vanilla, salt, and egg.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda.
  5. Add flour to butter mixture and blend until a dough forms.
  6. Lightly flour a flat surface, then roll out dough to a little less than 1/2-inch thick.
  7. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out 28 hearts (gather and re-roll dough scraps to get enough cookies).
  8. Transfer cookies to baking sheet.
  9. Bake until cookies are golden on bottom, about 8 to 10 minutes. Do not over bake.
  10. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.
