Using a Cuisinart® Hand or Stand Mixer fitted with the mixing beaters/paddle, mix until light and creamy. Add the vanilla and egg; mix until fully combined. Add the reserved dry ingredients and mix on low, until just combined. Fit the Cuisinart® Electric Cookie Press with desired disc, as instructed on page 2. Load the cookie dough to the MAX fill line. Press cookie dough out onto an ungreased/unlined baking pan, about 2 inches apart. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until just set. Cool cookies before removing from pan.
