Notes

These are one of my favorite cookies. Unlike chocolate chip cookies these are better when they've cooled off and gotten crispy.

Baking soda needs an acidic ingredient to react with to make it bubble. Lemon Juice, Applesauce, Buttermilk, Cream of Tartar are fairly common. But there is enough Cream of Tartar to give it some flavor. Since its mostly butter and sugar, I think its what makes it seem a little less sugar sweet.

Cream of Tartar helps make them fluffy.

yummy. What do you think the cream of tartar is for?
