  • 1 cup Unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 room temperature Egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 2 1/4 cups All-purpose flour


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray or parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a stand mixer or using a hand mixer cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in your egg and vanilla extract.
  3. In a separate bowl whisk together baking soda, baking powder, and flour. Slowly mix this in with your wet ingredients. Mixing until well combined.
  4. Scoop out 1 1/2 tbsp of dough and place on prepared baking sheet
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes (I cooked mine right at 8). Remove from oven then allow to cool on the baking rack. Serve and enjoy!
