Why I Love This Recipe

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

Ingredients You'll Need

1 C Butter
1 1/2 C Sugar
2 eggs
2 3/4 all purpose flour
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp soda
1/2 tsp salt


Mix the butter, sugar and eggs

Stir in the remaining ingredients

Chill dough. Role into balls the size of small walnuts and rol in cinnamon sugar. Place about 2" apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake until lightly browned but still soft. (They puff up and then flatten out with crinkled tops).

400* 8-10 minutes.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

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?
