Easy Sugar Cookies
2 3/4 cups flour (it calls for all-purpose, but I used whole wheat)
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350. Beat together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix well. Roll a tablespoon or so of dough into a ball and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 8-10 minutes, or until just brown on the edges. Let these stand on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before you remove them to a cooling rack.
