That recipe looks like it should have 1 tsp of  baking soda. The other thing is to stick with baking soda.

Did you get this from a book or website, and if you did could you share it ?

 

 

Food for thought :

 

"How Are Recipes Determined?

Some recipes call for baking soda, while others call for baking powder. Which ingredient is used depends on the other ingredients in the recipe. The ultimate goal is to produce a tasty product with a pleasing texture. Baking soda is basic and will yield a bitter taste unless countered by the acidity of another ingredient, such as buttermilk. You'll find baking soda in cookie recipes. Baking powder contains both an acid and a base and has an overall neutral effect in terms of taste. Recipes that call for baking powder often call for other neutral-tasting ingredients, such as milk. Baking powder is a common ingredient in cakes and biscuits." ( from site on chemistry)

Pedals is correct... your recipe is in error.

Many recipes in particular the ones from newspapers are notorious for leaving things out or typos. My wife onetime maid cookies and they came out bone white and tasted strange. I looked at recipe and said to her" Are these supposed to be diet because there is no sugar in them?" They forgot to list it
