Pre-heat the oven to 180C and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla and beat for 30 seconds. Stir in the dry ingredients and mix till combined.
Shape into small balls & when placed on the cookie sheet, flatten with glass dipped in sugar.
Bake the cookies for 8-10 mins or till they are almost firm to touch.
Let them cool completely on the tin. They will harden as they cool.
