Ingredients
  • 3/4  cup  butter, softened
  • 1  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup  granulated sugar
  • 1  teaspoon  baking powder
  • 1/4  teaspoon  baking soda

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and, if desired, cinnamon and cloves. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.
