Preheat oven to 190 C / Gas 5. In a small bowl, stir together flour, bicarbonate of soda and baking powder. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls and place onto ungreased baking trays.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Leave the cookies on baking trays for two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
