  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

  • In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt.
  • While the mixer is running on low speed, add in the egg and milk. Gradually add the flour mixture until just combined.
