Makes two dozen cookies
1 1⁄3 cups sifted flour
1⁄3 teaspoon baking powder
1⁄3 teaspoon salt
1½ sticks (6 ounces) butter
2 tablespoons plus ¼ cup white sugar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, and salt. In an electric mixer, cream the butter with 2 tablespoons white sugar and the brown sugar and vanilla. Beat in the egg. Stir in the dry ingredients. Place the remaining ¼ cup sugar in a clean bowl. Using a small ice-cream scoop, shape 1-ounce balls of cookie dough and roll each in the sugar. Bake 12 to 15 minutes, until the cookies are just browning at the edges.
