Great texture, great taste. Everyone always asks for this recipe when I make these cookies.

Cream of Tartar substitute: -1 tsp Baking powder = 1/2 tsp cream of tartar & 1/4 tsp soda. Since the recipe calls for both baking soda and cream of tarter, then omit both the baking soda & cream of tartar and just use baking powder. One teaspoon baking powder is equivalent to 1/4 teaspoon baking soda plus 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar.

I'm a huge fan of Mary's Sugar cookie recipe by Betty Crocker - its the only roll out dough that I'll use for the holidays! Great flavor!
