Combine flour, soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Mix well with whisk and set aside.

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, blend sugars at medium speed. Add softened butter and mix to form a grainy paste, scraping down the sides of the bowl. Add eggs and vanilla, and mix at medium speed until just blended. Do not over mix.
