Slice-and-Bake Chocolate Chip Cookies

The beauty of these Christmas cookies is how much easier and faster it is to slice the dough into evenly sized cookies than to drop them one at a time.

> 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
> 1 cup dark brown sugar
> 1/8 tsp salt
> 1 large egg
> 2 tsp vanilla extract
> 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
> 1 tsp baking powder
> 2/3 cup mini semisweet chocolate chips


Using a hand mixer or stand mixer, cream the butter, brown sugar, and salt 2–3 min., until fluffy. Add egg and extract. Combine well.
In batches, slowly mix in the flour and baking powder on low speed until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips. Shape dough into a roll about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap and refrigerate 2 hours, until firm.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Unwrap dough and cut into ½-inch slices. Arrange on parchment paper–lined cookie sheets, spacing 1 inch apart.
Bake cookies until golden, 10–15 min., switching racks halfway through. Let cool slightly and transfer cookies to a wire rack to fully cool.
