DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375; line cookie sheets with baking parchment paper for best results, but you can grease or use non-stick spray if necessar-- I use the non-stick spray all the time.
  • Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  • Cream together sugar and butter.
  • Add eggs one at a time and beat; then add the vanilla and beat.
  • Stir the flour mixture, alternating with the buttermilk, into the sugar mixture, stirring until smooth.
  • Drop by tablespoons or a small scoop (about 1 tablespoon capacity) onto the prepared cookie sheet.
  • Sprinkle the tops of the cookies with additional granulated sugar (I will flatten the tops just very slightly to hold more sugar) and bake for 7-10 minutes, until just firm.
  • Wait just a minute and then remove from the cookie sheets and cool on a rack.
  • *Asa substitute for the buttermilk, add 1 tablespoon vinegar or lemon juice to a measuring cup and add milk to make 1 cup; let stand for 10 minutes before using.
