Home made sugar cookies

Hello lovelies!!!
This week I was in the mood to do some baking!!
I made home made sugar cookies!!
Lots of real butter and sugar!!!
Yummy!!!!
Here is the recipe I used...

INGREDIENTS:

*2 3/4 CUPS ALL PURPOSE FLOUR
*1 TEASPOON BAKING SODA
*1/2 TEASPOON BAKING POWDER
*1 CUP OF BUTTER SOFTENED
*1 1/2 CUPS WHITE SUGAR
*1 EGG
*1 TEASPOON OF VANILLA EXTRACT

DIRECTIONS:
 
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks
 

These were really easy to make and oh so yummy!!!
Next time I think I will make some buttercream icing to go on top.
