Use Set instead of SetDelayed

s[t_] = Cos[t]*Exp[-t^2];
Timing[FourierTransform[s[t], t, w]]
Plot[Abs[%[[2]]], {w, -3, 3}]

{2.969*Second, Cosh[(1/4)*(-1 + w)^2]/(2*Sqrt[2]) + Cosh[(1/4)*(1 +
w)^2]/(2*Sqrt[2]) - Sinh[(1/4)*(-1 + w)^2]/(2*Sqrt[2]) -
   Sinh[(1/4)*(1 + w)^2]/(2*Sqrt[2])}
(*plot to be displayed*)

Execute the following command for more information

FrontEndExecute[{HelpBrowserLookup["MainBook", "2.5.8"]}]
