                1/2 c. butter                                     2 eggs                
                2 tsp. baking soda                           1 1/2 tsp. vanilla       
               1/2 tsp. baking powder                    1/8 tsp. salt

   Now take a fork, dip it in some sugar and make crisscross marks on each ball and gently flatten.  You do not need to flatten them much, they will spread out nicely on their own.

    Now bake for exactly 9 minutes.  Let cool for 2 minutes then remove to a plate.  These are especially good if you eat them right away.
