Add Vanilla:

Mix in the vanilla extract.
Combine Dry Ingredients:

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour and salt.
Make Dough:

Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until well combined.
If using nuts, fold them into the dough at this stage.
Shape the Cookies:

Roll the dough into small balls, about 1 inch in diameter, and place them on the prepared baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until the bottoms of the cookies are just starting to brown.
