Sugar cookies!

Speaking of cooking, I made some sugar cookies the other day. I think everyone on Earth has a different recipe. This one, from all recipes, is fabulous: sweet, crisp, not overblown:
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
I suspect you won't need the instructions. I would like to caution that chilling the cut-out cookies before baking is a good idea; the alternative is cartoonishly smooshed-out cookies (in my case, gorillas that resembled bison and moose that ran into the bison-rillas in suggestive ways.
