    1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).

    2. Beat sugar and butter together in a large bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat well.

    5. Bake in the preheated for 10 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets briefly before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
