1.  In a large bowl, sift the flour and salt.

2.  Cream butter and powdered sugar in a bowl of a standing mixer until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla.

3.  Reduce the speed to low and beat in the flour mixture until just incorporated.

4.  Gather dough and form a dish. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for about 30 minutes to chill.

5.  Preheat oven to 350F. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

6.  On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into rounds or other shapes using a floured cookie cutter. Place on the prepared baking sheets and place in the refrigerator for about 15 minutes.

7.  Bake the cookies for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cookies are lightly browned.

8.  Remove from oven and let the cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
