These were great! They made a lot of cookies too, I think I got up to 6 dozen from one batch. I used parchment paper so the cookies wouldn't stick, and rolled them in a mixture of cinnamon and colored sugar for a more festive look. I added a little bit more vanilla to the batter after the first batch because the cream of tartar was pretty strong to my taste, but after adding another tsp of vanilla they were perfect.

Delicious cookies, but mine turned out pretty flat. I put them in the refrigerator for a bit to firm up the dough and that helped a little, but they still flattened out a lot. They were really tasty though!

Wonderful recipe! I used palm shortening (which is non-hydrogenated) instead of Crisco, and they were perfect!

This was actually the second making these cookies. The first time they did not turn out good but i didn't follow the recipe so i gave them a second chance and instead of using all butter like i did the first time I broke down and bought some Crisco. OMG did that make the difference. These cookies are amazing and this will stay in my recipe box forever!

Thanks for the recipe! These were always my favorite cookie as a child and a must-bake for this first year of my doing holiday cookie platters. I recently made another recipe from another website & they just didn't taste like I remembered them. So happy to have found this one! Took a chance & made a double batch. So good - perfectly crispy around the edges & soft & chewy inside. Thank you!
