In a small bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in your egg and vanilla. Gradually mix in your dry ingredients. Roll out teaspoon sized balls of dough, and place onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 for 8 to 10 minutes, or until golden. Let stand for two minutes then remove to a wire rack.
