These are delish! I did make a slight adjustment...I added 1 tsp cream of tartar in place of 1 tsp of baking powder. I also used my standard frosting of powdered sugar, milk, and butter but next time I'll try this frosting recipe; sounds good. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was my first ever attempt at cut our sugar cookies and they turned out great (although I just used colored sugar, no frosting). They truly melt in your mouth!
