Great tasting sugar cookies, the 'you can't just eat one kind of cookie' that made a hit at our house. The ingredients were right on for a good sugar cookie, came together to make for a light, lovely crisp cookie great to serve for any occasion. Have always suspected the addition of cream of tartar makes for that lovely crispness. Into my favourites cookbook for this one! Thank you andy another great recipe added to my collection.
