Pennsylvania Dutch Soft Sugar Cookies

3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt

2 cups sugar
1 cup butter
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla

1 cup buttermilk

Sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs one at a time and beat. Add vanilla and beat.

Stir flour mixture into sugar mixture alternating with the buttermilk. Stir until smooth.

Drop by tablespoon full (or use a small ice cream scoop) onto greased cookie sheet (or for best results, use cookie sheet lined with parchment paper). Sprinkle tops with sugar. Bake in 375° oven for 7-10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and cool on rack. Makes 2-3 dozen. Store in airtight container.
