I have been looking for a sugar cookie recipe to add to my other assorted cookies for gifts and these are as close as I am going to get. They were just right. I'm going to reduce the sugar and use a butter cream frosting. But yes I did have a SLIGHT problem with the tangy acid taste from the baking soda/cream of tartar. Of course I made them vegan. Thank you so much! I had little hope I would find a sugar cookie recipe like this.

loved the cookies, except I could taste the baking soda which I don't care for...

These were excellant, chewy with a slightly crispy edge and they stayed that way in a covered container also! Passing this recipe along to others, its great!
