Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together Flour, Baking Soda, Baking Powder and Kosher Salt. Put aside for now.
Using a handheld or stand mixer with paddle attachment on medium speed, cream Butter and Sugar, about 2 minutes. Mix well until smooth and creamy. Add Eggs one at a time until combined and then Vanilla. With a spatula, scrape sides of bowl to ensure ingredients are incorporated.
With mixer on low speed, add dry ingredients (Flour mixture) little by little until incorporated.

Using an ice cream scoop or tablespoon form ball of dough, place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets lined with parchment paper and press dough down lightly with the palm of your hand.
Bake for 11 to 13 minutes (my cookies took 11 minutes to bake).
Let cookies rest on baking sheets for 2 to 3 minutes, and then transfer to wire rack to cool completely, about 1 hour.
Yields 36 cookies.
